Camiel Weijenberg, Founder of internationally award winning firm WEIJENBERG, was bestowed Perspective’s 40 under 40 Accolade at an award ceremony in Hong Kong last night. The 11th iteration of the Awards saw 40 creative stars in Asia under the age of 40 recognised from the fields of architecture, art, interior design and product design, believed to shape the design world in decades to come.
Camiel was commended for his contribution to architecture entering projects such as conceptual green building of the future – Chicago Towers, international landmarks – the Art Interchange in the Gold Coast and Busan Tower, as well as eco residential projects – the Sri Lankan Boutique Resort and Eco Bungalow in Singapore.
Each design infuses the firm’s signature aesthetic ‘Crafting the Traditional’ which combines cutting edge technology with traditional methods and materials. Designs are fueled by a passion to create inventive spatial experiences and to find form beyond constructive logic.
Celebrating Asia’s young design leaders, the 40 Under 40 practitioners are based and work primarily in the region as Asia continues to cement a name for itself for prodigious design and creative flair. Winners were chosen by Perspective’s editorial team, with selections based on the nominee’s professional achievements, contributions to the industry, potential for future development and growth as well as excelling in creativity, artistry and innovation.
Camiel Weijenberg commented, “2017 has been a year of moments. It is the year I got married, am expecting my first child and have been recognized by Perspective’s 40 Under 40, just before my 40th Birthday as well!
Importantly this Award recognizes what is yet to come. At WEIJENBERG we will continue to challenge the norm and view the world differently through research and experimentation. We will continue to envision ideas which reflect strong themes of sustainability, utilizing new materials and revolutionary technologies to improve the world in which we live, provide a better life for city-dwellers and create the unique.”
