The aim is to strive for local, regional and international architectural excellence through professionalism and creativity, and to provide a supportive environment for HKIA members to practise quality architecture and realise their professional potential.

    A total of 99 high quality submissions from both inside and outside Hong Kong were received this year. The awarded projects include not only landmark buildings such as museums, but also social projects such as public spaces and innovations in architectural techniques, which illustrates the diversity and international recognition of the Hong Kong architectural profession. After going through two stages of assessment and in-depth deliberation by 4 renowned jurors in August and September 2023, 64 awards are given to 57 outstanding projects.

    The Institute also takes the opportunity to present the prestigious HKIA Gold Medal Award 2023 to a senior architect, recognising his important achievements in and contributions to Hong Kong architecture throughout his career and profession. Meanwhile, the Young Architect Award 2022 is presented to young professionals aged 35 or below to honour and acknowledge their outstanding architectural talents.
