The Architizer A+Awards is the largest awards program celebrating the year’s best architecture and products.

The 5th Annual Architizer A+Awards

The A+Awards are bigger than just the architectural community. Entries are judged by more than 300 luminaries and thought leaders from fields as diverse as fashion, publishing, product design, real estate development, and tech. We wanted to create an awards program that reminded the world how important architecture is. What architects do shapes every space and every place where people spend their lives.

The A+Awards Gala

Winners, jurors, and VIPs all gather at a red carpet gala to honor the best in architecture and design. The celebration is the industry’s ultimate opportunity to mingle with celebrities, notable personalities, and new visionaries.
