  • Winner Category: Golden A’ Design Award Winner for Architecture, Building, and Structure Design Category in 2014
  • Inspiration: Since China has developed from agricultural civilization to industrial civilization, history never goes back. The Chinese peaceful and indifferent life aesthetics and faith for the integration of nature and humans are challenged and neglected. We do not deny development, but China needs to regain attention to its own culture at this stage.
the yearly competition strives to recognize, reward, and communicate good, design, its creators, and companies. this also enables architects, designers, and entrepreneurs alike to gain worldwide appreciation and publication for their work.
Temper will announce the winners of the award in a special feature on may 1, 2021.
