The INDEX Architecture & Design Awards

The INDEX Architecture & Design Awards (IADA), sponsored by HAWA Sliding Solutions and OFIS, celebrate exceptional creativity, innovation and passion in design over the preceding year.

INDEX has been supporting and facilitating the evolution of Dubai’s design industry into an internationally respected force since 1991. Taking place on its second evening in a glitzy, informal setting in the Dubai World Trade Centre, the awards ceremony features as the central social and networking function of the entire event.

The IADA ceremony will showcase leading architecture and design projects, products and professionals across 15 distinct categories, culminating in the INDEX Lifetime Achievement Award.
