Antarya Design Excellence Awards – 2022


Antarya, an initiative by IIID BRC was launched in the year 2004 as a Newsletter to keep our members updated on the events giving our Trade Members a platform to showcase their products. The initiative has come a long way and in the year 2013 it was launched as a full fledged magazine.

When iiid is completing 50 years, Antarya on its 18th year is relaunching its Regional Awards as "Antarya Awards" which will be celebrated at 'Designuru' in December 2022. The bi-annual awards will be in keeping with Antarya's philosophy of recognising and celebrating iconic works of architects and interior designers where the design approach, intent and execution is markedly different in its language.

In order to address design across a wide spectrum of projects, Antarya Awards will span over 10 categories, with a special category assigned to recognise the works of young practices, in tune with our feature, Young Turks. There is also a special category for Sustainable Design, to resonate with our Green Sense feature where we have showcased the works of leading architects across the country.

Besides sustainable sensitivities, Antarya has been a strong proponent of our traditional arts and crafts. In keeping with this sentiment, the Residential interiors category as well as the Hospitality Interiors category will invite and largely lean towards the use of traditional arts and crafts in the spaces. Yet another segment close to Antarya has been Heritage and its revival. A special category has been allocated to acknowledge, celebrate, commend restorations, repurposing of heritage structures.

Landscape architecture is a segment that is often missed when categories for recognition and commendation are drawn. Antarya firmly believes the exteriors are as important as the main structure and its interiors in articulating the language of a building and its spaces. A special category for landscape architecture thus finds its well-deserved space in the awards category.

Any development, change comes chiefly through innovation. Architecture is no different. Antarya makes it a point to recognise innovative approach to construction by architects and in keeping with this sentiment, a special commendation is reserved for innovative tools, techniques and methodologies used in construction.

Given the strong emphasis by Antarya to differential approach to design, the submissions under all categories will invite as well as be given weightage for such an approach.

Jurisdiction of the awards

The jurisdiction for submission of projects will be confined to architects practicing within the state of Karnataka. In order to encourage designers practicing in the tier I, tier II cities of Karnataka, outside Bengaluru, a special section is reserved for their submissions.

The jury to judge the entries will function at two levels, the first screening being done by a jury hailing strictly from Karnataka. The second, final selection and awarding will be by a jury hailing from across the country.
