The Housing Balance:
Design, Community & Economy in the Indo-Pacific

Housing presents universal challenges as well as contextual ones related to migration and urbanisation patterns, affordability and financing, culture and social norms, climate, construction modes and adaptability. The ingredients of resilient communities and environments around the Indo-Pacific region can be studied from multiple angles to find pathways to housing that achieves much more than real-estate-driven concerns. Housing that sensitively and successfully fuses top-down and bottom-up concerns is possible in many contexts. This session will dissect some of the region’s leading examples.

Finding & Financing Sustainability:
Indo-Pacific Built Environment Case Studies

What drives a strong vision for holistic sustainability in a project? How is it financed? What supports and threatens its implementation? The answers and the very framing of the questions will vary with place, budget and regulation, but will certainly allude to how the various players in the built environment industry value sustainability in all its forms. This session will seek out positive examples of sustainable development as a means of finding lessons that could benefit the regional industry as a whole.

Manifesting Culture, Place & Identity in the Indo-Pacific

The vernacular is often complementary to sustainable architecture and interior design. Yet in many cases these days, its manifestation tends toward the gestural. Opportunities for deeper relevance and benefit are overlooked. Similarly, sanitised and packaged versions of heritage, as well as dogmatic preservations of the past, each present their own limitations. Authentic understandings of what the vernacular has to offer the contemporary built environment can positively impact ideas of culture and how people live. This session will explore the lived experience – as opposed to the thin iconography – of culture, place and identity as manifested through a variety of project types in a spectrum of regional locations.

Ecosystems of Commercial Space in the Indo-Pacific

Globally, strategies from one sector of commercial space design are crossing over to influence others. This is creating new opportunities and avenues for the owners, designers and users of spaces. Though many of the drivers of this strategic fluidity are borderless, the cultural inflections of particular places, and the real estate and planning contexts at play, can vary considerably and influence the outcomes. This session will investigate, through regional examples, how global currents are manifesting in the Indo-Pacific and survey the lessons that can be shared between us.

Categories.

breaker2020_white

The Indo-Pacific’s most progressive buildings, spaces, objects, proposals and people. We award those who break barriers and do great things.

Honouring the past 12 months of exceptional architecture and design.

The Building.

The grand prize for the region’s most progressive architecture, The Building is awarded to the project that marks a new direction in the future of architecture as well as its capacity to respond to its local place and culture.

The Multi-Residential Building.

High-density living is about much more than efficiency. We honour a multi-residential building that is designed with equal consideration for community, site, sustainability, human experience and market needs.

The Living Space.

Homestead, shophouse or apartment, to live well is to respond to one’s place. We award the region’s most inspiring home, one that dwells thoughtfully and sensitively within its site and place, and responds with intelligence to its local context and culture.

The Work Space

The workplace is social and cultural, as much as it is functional. This award honours a workspace design that meets the demands of work and the needs of people.

The Social Space.

Some of the most impressive spaces are those where people interact and play. We honour a hospitality or F&B space that tells a relevant story, captures the imagination, and brings people together.

The Shopping Space.

Retail takes many guises today, but in physical retail spaces, impact and experience are critical. We award a space with mastery over retail’s shifting ground.

The Learning Space.

A spectrum of formal and informal spaces is emerging in the education context. We honour an environment that promotes connection and learning in the ways it needs to happen today.

The Wellness Space.

The spaces in which we seek health and wellness services are evolving. We honour a place for wellness that gives equal emphasis to procedure and human experience.

The Design Studio.

Whether architect, designer or a modern hybrid, this award esteems the studio that thinks differently, creates voraciously and challenges the norms.

The Influencer.

How does design change our world for the better? The Influencer is a product or project that represents how design impacts the region and the world at large. The Influencer demonstrates how progressive design can improve the world.

The Object.

Not all objects are created equal. We look at how they function, what they signify, and how they respond to the needs of people. Here, we award the region’s most original players in modern industrial design.

The Best Of The Best.

The highest of accolades, the Best Of The Best is awarded to one top-scoring winner on the night. This lucky winner has not only taken out the top prize for their category, but has the highest scoring entry of all winners.

The Prodigy.

Forget following trends; this award honours someone who sparks them. The Prodigy sees no distinction between design disciplines. The next wunderkind.

The Luminary.

Whether casting a long shadow across many disciplines or excelling ahead of the pack in one, The Luminary recognises the ongoing contribution of an industry icon.

Honouring ten years of exceptional architecture and design.

Best Of The Decade | The Living Space

Single residential or apartment, a living space has the power to connect us or closet us. We award a home that has, through its concept, design and execution redefined how we design for living in response to the stimuli of our times.

Best Of The Decade | The Work Space

The workplace has undergone an ambitious evolution to become a high-functioning environment that is social, cultural and community-driven. This award honours a watershed moment in workspace design; a project and place that has redefined the very meaning of how and where we work.

2020 Jury.

Powered by their insights, the INDE.Awards will light up the design world with the prowess of Indo-Pacific.
