International Space Design Award—Idea-Tops, which is supported by related government departments, was initiated by China Interior Design Website—the first portal among the architectural and interior design industry in China, together with three academic institutions: Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University, China Central Academy of Fine Arts and Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts. Idea-Tops aims to create the most thoughtful and influential space design award, discover and praise the best designers and design works around the world.
Architects, interior designers and authors of projects implemented in 2017 – 2019 from any country of the world, individually or in groups. Idea-Tops is open to the global architecture and interior design community, and has no restrictions on ethnicity, religion, region or nationality. The submission must provide realistic photos. Besides, group work must mark the name of the chief designer.
Idea-Tops Organizing Committee arranges the Jury to review all the entries and select those which meet the basic standards to enter the next round of judging. (If the Idea-Tops Division is authorized to evaluate the entries, it can organize the first review and select Shortlist Awards and Best Design Awards in its local area.)
5 top projects can be chosen as nominated works in each category; every nominee receives a Certificate and a Medal, and enters the final judging.
1 winner can be chose from the 5 nominees in each category; every winner receives a Certificate and a Trophy.
