INDE jury advice

Paul McGillick | Writer, Editor and Public Speaker | McGillick Consulting | Australia

“Entrants should emphasise the uniqueness of their projects and highlight the process embraced in reaching outcomes, especially client relationships and inside-out thinking which leads to successful and appropriate results.”


INDE jury advice

Eleena Jamil | Principal | Eleena Jamil Architect | Malaysia

“It would be interesting to organise text and images into a narrative sequence to describe the intended experience of the project. It is also always more interesting to see how the spaces created are used by users.”


INDE jury advice

Leone Lorrimer | National Practice Leader | GHDWoodhead | Australia

“Tailor your responses to the specific criteria and keep it brief. The shortest descriptions are most often the most insightful.”


INDE jury advice

Luke Yeung | Principal | Architectkidd | Thailand

“The diversity in where the projects come from makes reviewing them a big challenge. So I think it will useful to provide as much information to really understand the place of the project. In addition to knowing that the project has a high standard of quality, space and material, this will also show how the project is making a positive contribution towards the larger surrounding environment and culture.”


INDE jury advice

Koichi Takada | Director | Koichi Takada Architects | Australia

“Present a strong narrative that is concise and presents the key elements and intentions of the design, and it’s relationship with the users and surrounding context. Include beautiful photography that supports the narrative and shows the success of the design once complete – within its content, the execution and user satisfaction. And be selective. Less is more.”
