About The Contest:
ARCASIA in its endeavors to raise the standard of the built environment throughout Asia in general and in its Member countries in particular, has instituted the ARCASIA AWARDS FOR ARCHITECTURE (AAA) in order to encourage and recognize exemplary works done by ARCHIRECTS working in Asia. The first three in a two-year cycle of Awards were given every two years beginning 1992 during the ASIAN CONGRESS OF ARCHITECTS (ACA) organized by ARCASIA. The fourth Award was given in 1998 during the ACA-7 held in Colombo, Sri Lanka. From 1999 the Awards are being adjudged during the year in which ARCASIA Forum held and conferred in the year in which ARCASIA holds its congress. In 2012, mandate was given to the President of ARCASIA 2013-2014 to restructure the AAA from 2 years to 1-year cycle, and the judging and conferment of Awards will be within the same year as the Forum or ACA.
The aim of the ARCASIA AWARDS FOR ARCHITECTURES (AAA) is to acknowledge exemplary architectural work and in doing so encourage the sustenance of the Asian spirit, the development and improvement of the Asian built environment and enhancement of the awareness of the role of architects in the socio-economic and cultural life of Asian countries.
The ARCASIA Award also intends to demonstrate that good architecture is a majorcomponent of the positive influence on the human environment, and that physical development in Asia need not be in disharmony with the cultural values, national identity or the natural environment of developing countries in Asia.
