The Jury Panel, chaired by Mr Richard Ho (RichardHO Architects, Singapore), comprised of Mr Mochamad Ridwan Kamil (Urbane Indonesia PT and Mayor, Bandung, Indonesia); Mr Rocco Yim (Rocco Design Architects Limited, Hong Kong); Mr Tony Grist (HASSELL, Australia); Ar. Sathirut Nui Tandanand (President, Architects Regional Council Asia (ARCASIA), Thailand); and Mr Manit and Ms Sonali Rastogi (Morphogenesis and Prize Co-Laureates 2014, India).

The Panel selected Mr Hoang Thuc Hao as the Laureate for 2016 for his distinct architectural philosophy and the significance of his works. The Jury found Mr Hao’s cultural sustainability philosophy impressive. “We felt that Mr Hao’s work is a great example of how architecture can be contextual and yet liberating for the underprivileged. It goes beyond building sustainability in that he addresses cultural sustainability in his works, an aspect often neglected in developing economies,” said Mr Richard Ho, Chair of the Jury Panel.

“I am honoured to be the Laureate for the SIA-Getz Architecture Prize 2016. I see this Award as a recognition of my work among the under-privileged and rural communities. Many parts of Asia are still rural and under-developed. I do hope that more architects will step up to bring creative and sustainable solutions to the architectural needs of rural and underprivileged communities. Thank you Singapore Institute of Architects and Getz Bros!” said Mr Hoang Thuc Hao, the Laureate for 2016. Mr Hao’s works and his CV can be found at:

“It is encouraging that more award winning architects are being nominated over the years. There were about 20 nominations from ten countries this year – our largest number to date. I’m pleased that the SIA-Getz Architecture Prize is gaining momentum and ranks alongside established international awards,” said Mr Ong Tze Boon, President, 56th Council 2016-2017, Singapore Institute of Architects.

“Getz is delighted to have supported the Prize for a decade. Getz will be celebrating its presence in Singapore for 100 years next year. Our association with the Prize is a fitting tribute to our contribution to Asia for over a century. It brings me great pride to see the Prize mature and gain recognition from leading architects all over Asia,” said Mr Ray Simkins, President, The Getz Group.

The next SIA-Getz Architecture Prize for Emergent Architecture in Asia will, tentatively, be in 2018.
