INDE.Awards 2019 day program announced!

The INDE.Awards Gala is sold out, and if you missed out you can still get some of the action through our INDE.Awards Day program, featuring INDE.Awards VIPs, international guests and leading lights from the Indo-Pacific’s design and architecture scene.

INDE.Awards 2019 day program announced!

INDE. day is always about much more than a spectacular Gala and party. It’s also about bringing together the INDE. community for deep dives into the contextual and region-wide narratives that underpin the Indo-Pacific’s most innovative architecture and design.

It’s a chance to talk, to debate and contemplate, and to share the leading perspectives that are driving our region forward.

Last year in Singapore, INDE.Awards guests and VIPs had the opportunity to tour the progressive Gala venue – South Beach, by Foster + Partners and Aedas – with a member of the Foster team, gaining first-hand insights into the development of this sustainable urban quarter.

Then, over lunch at the Zenith showroom, we discussed Southeast Asian (SEA) futures with six of the shortlisted studios – just how are SEA’s architects and designers innovating in response to the needs of SEA?


What’s in store in 2019?

This year in Melbourne, we’ll be zooming in and out with two-panel discussions about topics that affect not just our region, but designers and architects globally. Naturally, special attention will be given to what it all means to us the Indo-Pacific. And we’ve assembled a line up of speakers who will dissect, analyse and position the discussion with frames of reference particular to our regional community.


The Progressive Mindset

The INDE.Awards celebrate progressive approaches to architecture and design. In this talk, we critically consider what constitutes ‘progressiveness’ in design. From innovation to experimentation, conceptual propositions to real outcomes.

Is Regionalism In Design Relevant Today?

Local heritage, culture, climate and resources all play a key role in creating site-specific structures and spaces. Or do they? Just how important is regionalism in design? What are the real outcomes we see from this approach? And what does it mean within an Indo-Pacific context?
