Started in 2012, the Ashui Awards are the most prestigious in the Vietnamese architecture and construction industry. This year’s ceremony was held on Sunday, 17 January at the Golden Estate Area of District 2, HCMC.
Every year, Ashui collaborates with an architectural partner to conceptualise and develop the Ashui Pavilion exhibition. Echoing from the success of last year’s exhibition in Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi, this year’s show impressed guests with its unique concept titled “The Haystack.” The 300+ guests were duly impressed with the glowing structure across the lush landscape gently lit by Unios luminaires. Attendees included industry leaders, representatives from large national firms and up-and-coming independent architects and designers.
The Ashui Awards now extends to 10 categories, celebrating the contribution of the many stakeholders in the process. Mr Viet Ha Le, Ashui’s Chairman and Founder, commented, “The Ashui Awards started from the need to celebrate and acknowledge the prominent architects in Vietnam. However, over time we realise that there are many people involved in a great project. Each project contributor brings their commitment and expertise to the project – along with the architects, there are also designers, developers, contractors and material providers.” <translated>
Mr Long Tran from Unios Vietnam commented, “Unios is honoured to be the lighting sponsor and contribute to the architecture and construction industry. We are proud of our quality luminaires and how they enhance the architectural structure. We send our congratulations to all the winners of this prestigious Ashui Award”
