Now in its fifth year, INDEX Architecture and Design Awards highlights the Middle East’s best architecture and design projects from the last 12 months. This year’s award winners showcase a diversity of talent, style, and depth, bringing together new residential projects, hospitality designs, restaurant interiors, cultural centers, and more.
“The scale at which the Middle East’s architectural and design offering has grown over the last two decades is down to the endless creativity and endeavor of the region’s buzzing design community,” says Samantha Kane-Macdonald, INDEX event director. “There really is nowhere else in the world that rivals the Middle East at this moment in time in regards to design ambition,” she continues.
