About the Award logo:
In line with the aim of the Prize, the Logo symbolizes Asia’s emergent Architecture. The six steps skywards denote the Architects passion and desire to excel. It portrays the aspirations of Asia’s architectural industry. The six layers also resemble the silhouette of roof-tops-both Asian and modern. The logo is in gold as gold is a winner’s colour. Gold also represents the richness and vibrancy of Asian culture and Asian architecture.

Why are we committed to the Award:
As a nearly century old corporate in the Building Construction industry, Getz has enjoyed a long, rich & memorable relationship with Architects in Asia. This has given us insight into how architects create sustainable, indigenous, contextually appropriate masterpieces out of buildings. To recognize this creative talent of Asia’s emergent architects, Getz Bros and the SIA have introduced the SIA-Getz Architecture Prize.
We hope this Architecture Prize will spur architects to even greater heights!
