The much-lauded Gardens by the Bay project in Singapore has picked up two prizes in the Design for Asia Award 2012, run by Hong Kong Design Centre.
Andrew Grant of Grant Associates collected the Grand Award and also a Special Award for Technology. The DFA Awards go to companies and designers from around the world that have achieved business success through good design that reflects, or has an impact on, the Asian lifestyle. This year more than 100 entries from around the world were nominated.
Gardens by the Bay has already won the Building of the Year Award at the World Architecture Festival and has been shortlisted in the Sustain Magazine Awards 2013 in the international project of the year category. The winner will be announced in March.
