The Asian Design Award as Asia's first and only continental competition focusing on environmental design is known as "the cradle of future environmental designers". The event, formerly known as the "China Environmental Design Award", has been successfully held for 14 sessions since 2003. Last year, its platform was upgraded to the Asia Architecture and Urbanism Alliance to promote a more open, far-sighted, more responsible industry cooperation organization based on equality and mutual respect.
It pays attention to, supports and promotes the emergence and development of new ideas, new technologies and new products in Asian cities and the architectural industry in a global perspective. The Asian Design Award has become the most influential and professionally authoritative design exchange event with the largest scope and scale, and the most in-depth exchange among colleges and universities with the environmental design major. Meanwhile, it is also an important platform for environmental design teaching competition.
