With 11 categories in tow, DOTY 2023’s special awards include Asia’s Most Influential Designer Award (AMIDA) which will be awarded to three international elites who have conceived stellar innovations, advocated for sustainability and played an influential role in this demanding industry: André Fu, Tony Chi and Alexander Wong. Another highly esteemed award is the Lifetime Achievement Award, to be presented to Dato’ Dr. Ar. Ken Yeang for his impressive list of successes over his lengthy career.
This year’s DOTY AWARDS also witnesses the comeback of the distinguished Tri-Star Achievement Award, a special accolade that celebrates the achievements of outstanding designers who have been awarded a DOTY for three years in a row. It also welcomes the return of both the Building Transformation Recognition Award (BTRA) and Women Empowering Designer Award (WEDA) the former honours the initiatives taken in building restoration and transformation of an existing building as an effort towards sustainability while the latter champions female designers’ dedication to excellence and leadership in innovation within the traditionally male-dominated design industry.
The Asia’s Most Prestigious Design Award (AMPDA) also makes a reappearance, acknowledging the designers’ accomplishments in creating imaginative, captivating and functional designs that add value to a space while best highlighting the materials and technology used to complete them.
