Also, there was a participant's dressed contest, and it was a very entertaining ceremony. Every year, the theme seems to be decided, this year rock 'n' roll was the theme for the dressed contest.
NPO Aoyama Design Forum (ADF) participated in the ceremony as one of the sponsors for this noteworthy celebration last week in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Furthermore, ADF will invite Ms. Tina Lau Kor Ting to Tokyo, Japan next year, as the winner of the MIID REKA Awards 2018 / ADF special award.
Below is the comment compiled into one summary that we received from the judges;
The design successfully integrates the old and the new, while maintaining the character of the space. Inventive and creative use of recycled materials adds to the allure of the interior. Overall, a well-executed project that gives a new lease of life to the building – Project: The Granary Kuching, Sarawak
ADF hopes to promote cultural exchanges between designers in both countries further. Congratulation!
