FuturArc Wins Honourable Mention at the SOPA 2024 Awards

HONG KONG, 21 JUNE 2024 – FuturArc is happy to announce that we have received an Honourable Mention at the Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) 2024 Awards for Editorial Excellence, a prestigious award that has been celebrating journalism best practices in the region and globally for over 25 years. FuturArc is the only publication that focuses on sustainable architecture and design to receive the accolade at SOPA 2024 Awards.

The 2024 awards cycle received over 700 entries to be awarded in 21 categories. According to SOPA, among the themes that stood out this year were the worrying state of healthcare across the region and public policy, particularly in the world’s two most populous nations, India and China.

Earlier on 3 May 2024, three entries from FuturArc have been announced as finalists across three categories, namely Excellence in Magazine Design, Excellence in Opinion Writing and Excellence in Photography under the Regional/Local publication group.

The winners were announced on Thursday, 20 June 2024 at an awards dinner in Hong Kong and over virtual broadcast. FuturArc’s article titled “Designing for Non-humans as an Act of Service: Humans’ Responsibility as Stewards” by contributor Nipun Prabhakar, published in the 3rd Quarter 2023: Cross-Generational Architecture print issue, was awarded an Honourable Mention in the Excellence in Opinion Writing category.

The judges commented: “The article provides a captivating viewpoint, on a topic that is unconventional but thought-provoking nonetheless.”

Prabhakar said: “I am deeply honoured to receive this recognition from SOPA for my article. This acknowledgement not only highlights the importance of inclusive and empathetic design but also inspires continued exploration into how architecture can serve all beings, human and non-human alike. I am grateful to FuturArc for providing a platform and mentorship to share these ideas and to the SOPA judges for recognizing the significance of this work. Thank you.”
