    Recognizing Architectural Design Excellence in the Cross-Strait Region

    The public exhibition at HKDI will showcase a total of 37 Gold, Silver, Bronze and Merit award-winning architectural design projects of CADSA 2017, including the winner of a Special Jury Award – Silver Award which is a temporary architecture. To facilitate the visitors to appreciate the wider spectrum of the projects, the exhibition will not only display portraits and design concepts of these projects on panels, but also the 3D architectural models of the Gold award winners. In addition, there will be an interactive multimedia zone for the public to review the award-winning architectural design projects on an iPad, and to cast their votes for “The Most Favourite Award-Winning Architectural Design Project” among all the award winning projects. (Please refer to the appendix for the exhibited projects)

    Besides, to facilitate the general public to review the successful CADSA 2017, a recap video featuring highlights of CADSA’s Symposium and Award Dinner will be displayed at the exhibition. The video will also highlight the sharing by students participating in the CADSA’s competition and exchange program. A sharing session by winners in the Professional Category of CADSA on their design concept and the story behind the award-winning architectural works will be held in the afternoon on 12th August 2017.
