The HKIA Cross-Strait Architectural Design Awards is the only bi-annual student competition of its kind in the region since its inception in 2013.
The student design competition with the theme of ‘shape and shapeless’ challenges participants to interpret and redefine ‘shapes’ or ‘shapeless’ through an architectural intervention design proposal that transcends humanity and nature. The submissions are expected to reflect the spirit of physicality and philosophy aspects of ‘shapes’ or ‘shapeless’, and open a platform to discuss the direction of future development in the context of the Straits and the Belt and Road.
5 of international architects and architectural educators are invited as the Jury Panel for the Awards included (in alphabetical order by last name):
Ms. Francesca Carlotta BRUNI, Partner and Managing Director of LBA, Arquitectura e Planeamento Lda, Macau
Professor Yan GAO, Founding Partner of iDEA, The Mainland
Mr. Frankie LUI, Principal and Founder of Atelier Global Ltd. , Hong Kong
Mr. Kamran Afshar NADERI, Architect, Iran

The competition results will be announced during the Awards Presentation Dinner at JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong on 21st June 2019.
