Civil Engineering Design Prize

Civil Engineering Design Prize

Civil Engineering Design Prize recognizes the individuals and organizations whose designs and constructed structures are aesthetically pleasing and have contributed to the enhancement of the beauty of landscape, the improvement of convenience in life and also the improvement of public’s appreciation for structural design.

Ideal civil engineering is that it ensures society and people a safe, secure and healthy environment and also provides the national land and towns with beauty and grace. In order to realize the ideal, not only do design engineers make efforts, but also people need to understand those engineers’ efforts and appreciate their achievements. In other words, the engineers have to present the achievements that represent the ideal in form of structures to the public in an convincing manner. Given this, designing serves effectively and should be given more emphasis on in the civil engineering discipline.

Major subjects for structural design are town and natural environment; planners and design engineers are doubtlessly required for a good amount of time and efforts until completing the construction of a piece of structure, beginning from drawing up a plan and design. And in addition to good performance, to provide the structure with aesthetic features, they pursue beauty uncompromisingly with a strong will and bountiful imagination, which serve as a driving force for the people get involved in the construction to integrate and move towards the goal of creating functionally and aesthetically excellent structure.

By presenting the Civil Engineering Design Prize, the Landscape and Design Committee seeks for public recognition of importance of structural design and realization the planners and design engineers’ efforts behind a construction. The awardees and works are introduced to the public.
