BCI Asia Awards 2019

The annual BCI Asia Awards — now into its 15th year — will be held in seven Asian regions: Hong Kong SAR, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Beyond recognising developers and architecture firms building and designing the greatest volume of buildings in the seven markets, BCI Asia Awards aims to encourage the creation of socially-responsible architecture. Celebrating 15 years of building and design leadership, BCI Asia Awards remains as one of the most coveted awards in the regional building industry while serving as a platform for domestic and international networking among elite architecture firms, property developers, manufacturers and service providers.

The BCI Asia Awards 2019 will be held at the seven Asian territories at the following dates and venues:

Top Ten Architects and Developers Awards

The BCI Asia Top Ten Architects and Developers Awards will be bestowed at the awards ceremony. The Top Ten Architects / Developers are identified as the firms with the greatest aggregate value of projects under construction during the last full calendar year by the extent of their sustainability and confirmed Green building ratings. The criteria for the Top Ten Architects also include projects from the pre-tender stages to recognise early-stage Green design efforts. The winners for 2019 will be announced in March 2019.

With soaring portfolio values, BCI Asia Top Ten Awards has gained traction and prominence in recognizing the architects and developers who are integral part of the industry.

FuturArc Prize & FuturArc Green Leadership Award

First launched in 2007, FuturArc Prize (www.futurarcprize.com) aims to encourage and generate forward-thinking, innovative design ideas for Asia and its sustainability. For more than 12 years, the competition has been the leading platform for professionals and students who are passionate about the environment to envision a more sustainable future for Asia. Every year, FuturArc Prize has reached out to thousands of professionals and students from the region and beyond to propose ideas based on a different brief or challenge. Hyper-density, Asia: The 2019 cycle asks entrants to propose solutions to live and/or work in a hyper-dense city in Asia, based on an actual site measuring 1km2 in size.

FuturArc Green Leadership Award (www.futurarcgreenleadershipaward.com) was launched in 2009 to seek out ecologically responsible buildings in Asia, recognising the team behind a completed project (architects, developers, consultants, contractors, etc.) who has collectively raised the bar of what a Green building is in Asia. Projects, which should fall under any one of the six categories, are judged on how the project delivers specific, measurable outcomes, based on the criteria of resilience; wellness; embeddedness; ecosystems; and replicability.

BCI Asia Interior Design Awards

It seeks interior architectural designs that stand out aesthetically, functionally and ergonomically, based on the criteria of spatial design; comfort; aesthetics; innovation; and realisation efficiency.
