Design Information


This year's the Association of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage (ASA) Experimental Design Competition 2023's theme is "Not Only Human", based on the idea of how architecture can take into account complex environmental conditions that include not only humans but all living things. ADF (NPO Aoyama Design Forum) is sponsoring the competition in partnership with ASA.

This year, people residing in Thailand as well as people from all over the world can apply. The application deadline is April 1, 2023, 23:59:59 (local time in Thailand, UTC+07:00).

ASA Award

This experimental, single-stage architectural ideas competition invites all architects and other disciplines, both professionals and students, to submit compelling proposals that are not constrained by size, typology, program or location. Participants are encouraged to be as creative as possible. Proposals are open to different narratives that encourage us to rethink the way we live together with other species, elements, things and beings.


Architecture defines man's relationship to the environment. Early dwellings protected humans from danger and discomfort and provided space for tools, livestock, and even immaterial beings such as spirits. Placing human needs at the center of architecture is natural. However, amidst the ongoing environmental crisis, we are inevitably forced to rethink the way we live and build. How can we incorporate other living things throughout the ecosystem into the man-made environment? ASA Experimental Design Competition invites all participants to explore how architecture can account for the complexity of environmental conditions that include all living things, not just human beings.
