The aim of the ARCASIA AWARDS FOR ARCHITECTURES (AAA) is to acknowledge exemplary architectural work and in doing so encourage the sustenance of the Asian spirit, the development and improvement of the Asian built environment and enhancement of the awareness of the role of architects in the socio-economic and cultural life of Asian countries.

The ARCASIA Award also intends to demonstrate that good architecture is a major component of the positive influence on the human environment, and that physical development in Asia need not be in disharmony with the cultural values, national identity or the natural environment of developing countries in Asia.

Paper Submission Deadline Extended to 14 July 2019
Due to a number of requests for an extension, the seminar committee has extended the deadline by one week to 14 July 2019 (midnight Bangladesh time). 

Never before in the history of humanity has one witnessed such unprecedented speed and nature of change in every facet of human life as happening today. From the technological to the political, from climate to migration, and from cities to regions, unprecedented change and transformation, and at a remarkable rate, mark our epoch. Architects are negotiating everyday with increasingly volatile contexts of shifting economic, physical, technological and geo-political landscapes. In order to address many facets of these undeniable phenomena, the theme, Architecture in a Changing Landscape, is expected to evoke thoughts, innovations and ideas appropriate for the present and future state of architecture.

The Architects’ Regional Council Asia (ARCASIA) is a Council of the presidents of the National Institutes of Architects of twenty-one Asian countries that are members of ARCASIA. Every alternate year, ARCASIA FORUM is hosted by one of the member countries of ARCASIA. The Institute of Architects Bangladesh (IAB) will host ARCASIA FORUM 20 in November, 2019 with the theme “Architecture in Changing Landscapes”. ARCASIA Board has decided to organize a design competition among the individual students of ARCASIA member countries in this FORUM. This ARCASIA Students’ Architectural Design Competition 2019 is organized by the host Institute under the aegis of the ARCASIA Committee for Architectural Education (ACAE).

The objective of the ARCASIA Student Competition is to provide an arena for students from ARCASIA member countries to participate in ARCASIA activities. It is an opportunity for students from different cultures to exchange and share idea on particular design issue that is raised by ARCASIA every year.

“A Place for Resolution”

We live in a time of many “conflicts”. These conflicts are of many natures. Some are social, cultural, religious; some are spatial, territorial; some are environmental and so on. The student is to identify such a conflict and to design a “Project” that attempts to find a “Resolution”. One should venture beyond the ordinary boundaries of Architec- ture- not only be aware of one’s surroundings and events but also attempt to seek answers. The project should show us how “an Architect” can bring about a “Resolution” in a “Conflict”, and demonstrate the architect’s role as a thinker, a reformer, an activist, and a visionary.

Any current undergrad student(s) may submit individually or as a team.

Any current full-time student studying in an undergraduate Architecture program accredited/ recognized by respective member institute of ARCASIA.

Individual or team submissions are accepted. No limitation on number of team members. However, Students are only allowed for one submission either on an individual or team basis.
