The SIA Architectural Design Awards is the most prestigious award conferred by the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA) to promote and encourage distinction in architectural design.

The Awards recognise the achievements of SIA Members in their pursuit of building excellence and innovation, as well as their invaluable contribution to broadening conversations about architecture within and beyond the discipline. . The Awards also aim to heighten the appreciation and patronage of good architectural design from the architectural fraternity and the general public.

This year, we are inviting overseas Jurors to Singapore and bringing back Site Visits to shortlisted projects in celebration of the opening up of borders and the coming together of architects as an international, yet closely knitted community. The submission process remains simple to encourage entrants to partake in the shift towards the digital. As our world is undergoing rapid changes in these post-Covid times, we want to shine the spotlight on projects that demonstrate sensitive placemaking, responsiveness to societal shifts, environmental sustainability and promote well-being for its users and inhabitants.
