The SIA-Getz Architecture Prize for Emergent Architecture in Asia honors, biennially, an architect who contributes to emergent architecture in Asia. Launched by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) and Getz Bros. & Co. (Singapore) in 2005, the prize is in its sixth edition this year.
In the last three decades, Asia has been experiencing an overwhelming rate of development. This has left an impact on the international architecture scene. It is therefore appropriate to recognize and promote emergent Asian architects – architects who produce an exemplary quality of works while responding innovatively to the swift changes in our society, culture and economy.
This year, a panel of distinguished judges from the Asia-Pacific region have been invited. The jury will assess the nominations and select the candidate(s) for the award of the SIA-Getz Architecture Prize.
