Background of FA Emerging Architect Award (FAEAA) 2018

To explore the most talented young architects, to create a crossover entrepreneurial platform for them, to rebuild villages for targeted poverty alleviation with the power of design, FA Emerging Architect Award is organised by « FA Fortune Art » Art & Design Magazine and supported by mainstream media in China: Dragon TV Arts and Humanities Channel and « The Paper »(澎湃新闻).

Too difficult to choose



After 4 months’ preparation, submission and pre-selection, the names of TOP40 list and the final 12 finalists have been released on March 7th 2019. Almost 190 architects from four regions across the straights applied for the award and they submitted excellent projects. 21 director judges were extremely impressed by the quality of all the works, which is why they decided to add 2 extra places to the entry list of 10. Thus, there are officially 12 finalists of FA Emerging Architect Award 2018.

Director judges found it extremely hard to vote for only 10 candidates since many of the architects’ works are outstanding.
