Reminders For The Submission And Judging Process

    Please ensure all diagrams, sketches, drawings, photographs and
    annotations are sufficiently large and of clear resolution for legibility.
  3. For site visits of large projects, the shortlisted firms are required to use
    the allocated time effectively to show the Jurors key spaces

    architect can use printed conceptual sketches, plans and sections to
    explain the overall project, at the beginning of the site visit.
  4. For Overseas and temporary Singapore Projects, the video presentation should reflect on the design approach and architectural narrative through thoughtful captures of the project’s spatial quality and human interactions within it. The overall presentation is to be kept strictly within the allocated 8 minute s with a subsequent 7 minutes for the Jurors’ Q&A.
