In recent years new projects in Hong Kong have been scarce, forcing architects to seek new markets in Macau, Mainland China (for large scale projects in particular), South East Asia and the Middle East. This book is a clear reflection of the diversity that has resulted. Richly illustrated with photographs, sketches and drawings, it features the winning projects in each category alongside honorable nominees.

Judging criteria include heritage, sustainability, interior design, accessibility, urban design and technical innovation. Works include lecture theatres, hotel lobbies, external facades, residential projects, airport terminals and more.
