Over the last couple of years, we have been following the emerging trends within the design sector and have arrived at a conclusion that the future of architecture lies in innovation and tech-based ideas. Hence, it gives us great pleasure to announce India’s first award for Innovation in the design and construction sector.

The Concept

With the slogan of ‘Thinking Young’, these awards will focus on the Future of Design, aimed at bringing together professionals from various verticals of the Indian Architecture & Design industry that will shape the future of this sector. We intend to appreciate and celebrate excellence in business and operational performance of those who are raising the bar within these sectors by offering exceptional service and creating newer benchmarks.

Why Focus on Innovation?

All over India, buildings are entering the high-tech automation phase. Integration of Technology in architecture has been changing the dynamics of the trade. With Artificial Intelligence and other emerging technologies, a paradigm shift has been observed in the design and construction field. By recognising these innovations, AU wishes to felicitate, celebrate and encourage the innovators.


While we are confident of our objective for the award function, the true challenge lies in the conduct of the process in a manner that is Transparent, Unbiased and Unquestionable – characteristics, which are intrinsic to the principle editorial values of Architecture Update.

These thoughts precisely form the basis of the methodology of selection of the award winners. The winners will be shortlisted on basis of research and devised with expert inputs from our advisory board members who are amongst industry stalwarts.

The evaluation process will be as follows:

  • Call for Entries
  • Shortlisting/ Filing Nominations
  • Data Collation
  • Independent Evaluation and Validation by Research Partner
  • Selection and Finalisation by the Jury

Entries received will be measured against stringent qualitative and quantitative industry benchmarks in order to determine the highest standards of excellence practised.
