enCity won 3 awards at 7th SIP Planning Awards 2021

enCity was honoured to receive awards for three projects at the 7th Singapore Institute of Planners (SIP) Planning Awards on 16 September. Three projects were: Ho Chi Minh City Highly Innovative and Interactive District (HIID) – SILVER, Ben Tre Strategic Vision Plan & North Da Lat District – SPECIAL MENTION. 

The awards, held in Singapore and live-streamed for overseas viewers, have become an international event among planning firms in Asia with participants from countries with established planning practices such as China and Australia and projects from all over the world, as far as Rwanda and Turkey.

In the category of Excellence in Planning > 5000ha, enCity and Sasaki’s Highly Interactive & Innovative District (HIID) was awarded Silver, for its fresh planning ideas, stakeholder engagement and functionality across multiple scales to promote connectivity, innovation, glocal characteristics, wellness, resilience and sustainable development. 

In the same category, enCity and Roland Berger’s Ben Tre Strategic Vision Plan was awarded a Special Mention for its emphasis on the province’s strengths and assets, its climate resilience and water management strategy, and its sensitivity to the unique and diverse settlement morphologies while creating new growth opportunities.

In the category of Excellence in Urban Design, Placemaking and Public Space, enCity’s North Dalat District was awarded a Special Mention, for its use of the natural topography to create a unique urban environment that thrives in tandem with the natural ecological and hydrological system of the site, while being sensitive to its existing context, respecting local identity and heritage and creating harmony between new and old.

enCity is honoured to have been recognised at this event, and to be one of the few organisations to win multiple awards within this cycle. We look forward to taking part again in 2023.
