FROM QUÉBEC TO ASIA
Created in 2007 in Montréal, a UNESCO City of Design, with the mission of recognizing the excellence of designers and architects who have distinguished themselves through exemplary practice, the competition was originally open exclusively to ﬁrms and professionals with a place of business in Québec.
Since 2016, in collaboration with the APDC – Asia Pacific Design Center, the competition has opened a section for ﬁrms from China, the GPD | APDC Awards.
A whiff of freshness, new avenues, parallel paths, and a strong synergy that allows Québec and international designers to seize inspiration in the Chinese architectural and design culture.
From a continent to the next, concerns are often the same – the environment, social impact, a desire to re-invent the architectural and design vocabulary – all the while, doubling up on creativity.
The competition is open to all design and architecture professionals and students, as well as to real estate developers, contractors, manufacturers, and clients who have called upon these professionals to design their projects in various categories.
