With the annual A&D Trophy Awards and the first A&D China Awards just around the corner, we are proud to announce this year's Pinnacle Award winner: veteran British architect Ron Phillips
Perspective hosts its flagship A&D Trophy Awards on November 16 in an annual event that recognises the best in architecture, interior design and product design from both professionals and students in the Asia-Pacific region. It is also a meeting ground for professionals, academics and creatives to exchange ideas and discuss trends.
This year, as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the awards, we are expanding our scope to mainland China with the inaugural A&D China Awards. They aptly reflect the burgeoning design scene of the region, which now hosts countless international architectural practices and is also home to its own rich lode of young talent.
Ron Phillips, who worked for the Hong Kong Government from 1956 to 1969, designed a series of buildings in his signature bold modernist style and left a legacy of environmental innovation. He designed Hong Kong's City Hall and the Star Ferry Concourse in Central, but his most famous contribution was the Public Works Department headquarters, the Murray Building in Garden Road, now widely regarded as pioneering example of sustainable architecture. With the building recently converted by Foster + Partners into The Murray, Hong Kong hotel, Phillips' award is both pertinent and well-deserved.
