Theme

This year, GADA holds the theme "High Light Architecture" where the objects are lighting in architectural design. Lighting is one of the most important architectural elements. Lighting will bring a different impressions to a building. It can be luxurious, plain, homey, and any other impressions.

Hopefully, The final product shows the natural lighting effects from the building, not from the lighting tools itself and also how the natural or artificial lighting effects shows the natural esthetics of the building, not a faked one. The objects can be buildings, or any other constructions that can provide human's activity, but not kind of monuments or sculptures.

(Tahun ini gada mengangkat tema high-light architecture di mana objek foto yang diinginkan berupa lighting atau pencahayaan dalam arsitektur. Lighting atau pencahayaan merupakan salah satu elemen penting dalam arsitektur. Pencahayaan akan memberi kesan yang berbeda pada sebuah bangunan. Kesan yang ditimbulkan dapat berupa kesan megah, sederhana, kesan 'homey', dan lain-lain.

Hasil foto diharapkan menonjolkan efek dari pencahayaan terhadap bangunan bukan alat dari pencahayaan tersebut. Bagaimana pencahayaan alami dan buatan ini nantinya akan menunjukkan nilai estetika lebih pada suatu bangunan serta dapat menonjolkan bangunan tersebut, bukan hanya terkesan sebagai elemen tambahan atau tempelan. Karya arsitektur ini tidak hanya terbatas pada bangunan saja namun dapat berupa jembatan dan konstruksi lain yang dapat dijadikan tempat untuk kegiatan manusia. Namun tidak mencakup monumen atau patung.)
