Frederique Maurell, Group Event Director for INDEX and workspace at INDEX, said: “This year’s Middle East Interior Design & Architecture Awards will be extra special as they form an integral part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for INDEX. The appetite for this year’s Awards is already strong; with many leading architecture and design firms wanting to enter before the official launch date was announced. Since their inception in 2012, participation in the Awards has grown significantly year-on-year, with last year’s Awards achieving a 30% increase in entries. This year’s Awards are set to be the biggest yet as we expect to receive more than 120 entries – a clear indicator of how high the industry regards the Awards and its commitment to showcasing and celebrating the region’s best architecture and design projects.”
Open to architecture and design firms from across the globe, the Awards reward projects located in the Middle East and North Africa region completed between 1st January 2012 and 31st December 2014, or are due for completion by 31st December 2016.
