Which Projects Are Your Best of the Decade? Vote Now!

The INDE.Awards‘ Best of the Decade | The Living Space and Best of the Decade | The Work Space categories mark the start of a new decade – and the twentieth anniversary of Indesign Media Asia Pacific – by celebrating a decade’s worth of outstanding work by our region’s architects and designers.

These two special award categories, which are being decided by Jury and by People’s Choice, give us reason to collectively look back on how we’ve progressed in our region, and to consider where we’ll go from here. There’ll be two trophies for each of these categories on Gala night – and your input will influence who takes home INDE gold.

Our Jury has already combed through the entries and determined the Shortlists for our Best of the Decade categories – and these represent your pool of choices for the People’s Choice components. For all other award categories, you’ll need to wait until 19 May for the Shortlist announcement, so this is a unique opportunity to discover some of the studios contending for an INDE trophy in 2020!

Without further ado – and with warm congratulations to the Shortlisted studios – here are the contenders:
