This year's design theme will be "Design for Architecture".

We are looking for architectural works that shows not only the beauty in appearance but also the originality and innovativeness in the process of the design. Further, the architectural works must be beneficial to humans and considerative to  the environment. We are looking for challenging architectural works to break new ground in the world of architectural design in the following categories:

  1. Hospitality
  2. Commercial & Office
  3. Education & Sports
  4. Cultural Buildings
  5. Public Architecture

Based on (1) beauty, (2) innovation, (3) usefulness, and (4) regional/cultural/chronological characteristics, the best entries will be selected through a rigorous screening process by a distinguished panel of juries active worldwide.

As in the past, ADF will set up a venue at Fuori Salone during the “Milano Salone (Salone Internazionale del Mobile)”, the world's largest furniture trade fair scheduled for April 2023. We will exhibit the award-winning work and host a reception party inviting juries and authorized people to disseminate your works to the world. We also plan to exhibit the award-winning work at the ADF Gallery in Tokyo, Japan.

The award outline will be announced as soon as the details are finalized.
