ArchiDesign Awards, the Mission & the Vision

ArchiDesign Awards represent the highest recognition of excellence in architecture, interior design, urban design, and infrastructure. The award-winning entries will convey exceptional qualities of character, space, workmanship, sustainability and context. ArchiDesign Awards recognize the professionals who have the efficiency to place through the evocative use of materials and elegant detailing.

The work of architecture stands on three pillars—design, technology, and service. As our most expensive, complex, and durable artifacts, our buildings measure and indicate our cultural values—some constant and some changing. Architects seek to define our present in buildings that connect our past with our future. Architects work closely with other members of the construction industry including engineers, builders, surveyors, interior designers, and town planners etc., constituting a whole team of skillful professionals devoted to creating a whole world of comforts for us. The mission of ArchiDesign Awards is to actively promote the works and devotion of these professionals whose untiring efforts have resulted in the shape of creative and efficient structures for the benefit of mankind. Bringing their works before the world and get them the recognition on the global platform is what ArchiDesign intends to deliver.

ArchiDesign Awards will promote the best of design and technology by exhibiting widely the creations of professionals before the elite audiences. ArchiDesign Awards will actively promote and support research and development today in the field of Architecture and Construction that create the theater of the future.

We, at ArchiDesign, believe that Awards Programme should be carefully structured so that selection and recognition of winners serve two distinct purposes: one directed to the profession, and the other to the public or society. By focusing attention on a broad range of exemplary activity within the profession, the general quality of architectural practice is elevated and a standard of excellence is established which will act as a benchmark for all professionals.

ArchiDesign Awards marks the beginning of a tradition of recognizing professionals for their outstanding achievements.
