2A Magazine is the Middle East regional source for information regarding architecture, design, and art. ‘2A’ intends to establish a polyphonic relationship with the professional, international audience and should therefore focus on structures that make this relationship possible within its most comprehensive form. As part of its expanding activities 2A is now organizing the 2A Asia Architecture Award (2AAA).This event takes place annually to highlight and celebrate regional and Asian achievements in architecture.
The award is a critical effort to recognize and acknowledge architects who have engaged in creating and designing buildings and cities in Asia originating from their specific cultural and geographical localities and possess specific quality and characteristics attributable to their local origins.
This year, the awards ceremony is held at the Bene showroom and flagshipstore in Vienna. The jury will hand out awards in seven categories, among them Residential, Public, Commercial or Interior.
The jury consists of Dr. Volkwin Marg (Gerkan, Marg and Partners), Nasrin Seraji (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture Paris-Malaquais), Wolfgang Tschapeller (Academy of the fine arts, Vienna), Murat Tabanlıoğlu (Tabanlıoğlu Architects), Françoise Fromonot (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville) and Hiromi Hosoya (Hosoya Schaefer Architects).
An exhibition will showcase all the nominated projects.
