Our Mission

The AfriSam-SAIA Award for Sustainable Architecture + Innovation recognises contributions that bring sustainable innovation to living environments through an integrated approach to communities, planning, design, architecture, building practice, natural systems and technology. We believe collaboration benefits everyone.

 

Judging Criteria

Judges look at three main criteria that entries must demonstrate. These are:

  • Regeneration
  • Reconciliation
  • Restoration

Project entries are required to demonstrate how they make the world a better place by minimising the environmental impact of building. The projects are also required to bear the hallmarks of great architectural or social design. Entries are submitted under two categories, one for built work and the other for works of social importance, including research.
