A new category and a stellar jury lineup, get ready for the INDE.Awards’ biggest year yet.

Entering its seventh year, the INDE.Awards remain the Indo-Pacific’s largest architecture and design award program, which is dedicated to celebrating the diverse talent of our wider region. Since its inception, the program has dedicated itself to acknowledging outstanding design outcomes, with a focus on progressive and innovative approaches to the architecture space.

Over the years, the awards have recognised some of the industry’s most well-known names, and promoted the success of smaller studios and rising stars, playing an influential role in the future of the design space and the recognition of Indo-Pacific design on a global stage.

This regional focus is integral to the INDE ethos, it looks beyond our immediate design vernaculars and establishes a wider dialogue with countries across the Indo-Pacific. The INDE.Awards recognises that new typologies are born out of different contexts, landscapes, communities and approaches and that the strength of our industry is bolstered by the comparison and differentiation of a truly diverse pool of entries.
