ACA has been organizing the International Design Competition annually since 2013 to establish connections among the global architectural student community and academia, to create reference points much beyond its immediate context and have a meaningful and progressively enriching dialogue on architecture by breaking regional and contextual boundaries that we create for ourselves.

In its 6th year, the competition has grown to be reckoned among the best events for Architecture students to test their learning, skills and showcase their capabilities. The last date for submission is 10th December 2019.

More about the Competition

In 2017, the competition opened to 17 ARCASIAN nations. The design brief was titled ‘Inhabiting Nature’ and invited architectural interpretations to set in varied contextual settings of Asian countries. The National and International entries were Judged by an eminent panel of jury members and the eclectic prize distribution ceremony was graced by Mubbasar Hussain as chief guest.

For the upcoming ‘2019 Competition’ we bring to you the competition brief, ‘ARCHITECTURE OF INHERITANCE’; an attempt to investigate the various possible outcomes through which inheritance can perform as a catalyst while creating a design that respects both past and present. We have invited eminent Architects and Professionals who have contributed to the field of architectural education and are achievers in their professional work, as jurors for the competition.

This year among our eminent Jurors we have Ar. Yatin Pandya of Footprints E.A.R.T.H, Architect, Author, Activist, Academician & Winner of 25 National and International awards, Ar. Palinda Kannangara from Sri Lanka – Winner of many National and International Awards, AR.Laxman Thite who has helmed many industry associations and was conferred the Vijay Ratna Award, Ar.
