2A Continental Architectural Awards 2021

2A Continental Architectural Awards in 2021

The 2A Continental Architectural Awards (2ACAA) is a stage designed to appreciate the pioneering works of architecture, planning practices, and design. Through the relentless efforts of Ahmad Zohadi, the Award seeks to recognize and encourage architecture concepts that effectively address the needs and objectives of societies – all over the globe.

Organized by the 2A magazine, these prestigious awards work to honour the reputable architects whose design and built work demonstrates a flawless blend of talents, vision as well as commitment. We recognize and appreciate the architects who have worked to produce steady and noteworthy contributions to humankind and the built environment by way of the splendid art of architecture.

2A Continental Architectural Awards 2021

“Innovative Contextual Architecture in the Continents.”

This year, the theme of 2ACAA is “Innovative Contextual Architecture in the Continents.” With this theme, we sought to highlight the key issues of sustainability, climate adaptation, as well as the quality of life in architecture. Our vision is to broaden the design language of the architects and encourage them to develop projects that address the issues that are now at the vanguard of universal architectural discussion. Our objective is to inspire designs that will benefit generations to come.
