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

Jury Decided | People’s Choice

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. Vote for your 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.

2019 Jury.


In order to showcase the best of the best, we’re relying on the careful curatorial eye of a prestigious judging panel. We select judges who know our region and hold an international perspective. They are all progressive thought leaders from the design and built environment industries.

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