The Typology, Plus & Product Categories
The A+Awards consist of three categories. The Typology Categories celebrate traditional building types. The Plus Categories recognize the link between global issues and the structures that society builds. The Product categories acknowledge that symbiosis between products and building.


THE TYPOLOGY CATEGORIES
Architects do a lot of things—signage, branding, presentations, conferences—but at the core of our profession, we make buildings and spaces. The Typology Awards honor this core function. To be recognized amongst the best is an incredible achievement worthy of praise—and perhaps a bit of bragging. Entries must be built or conceptualized within the past three years.

THE PLUS CATEGORIES
Architecture touches everyone at multiple scales. At the largest scale, The Plus Awards celebrate how architecture is capable of responding to global issues, shifts in technology and our evolving society—these are the Concept Categories. At the smallest scale, architecture is tactile; nearly everyone in the world touches architecture every day. The Detail Category celebrates innovative features and material applications. Entries must be built within the last three years.

THE PRODUCT CATEGORIES
Every architect and designer knows it takes spectacular products and materials to make their designs a reality. Here we present the categories that speak to design solutions that matter most to architects. Products can be entered into multiple categories, but must be available to the market by September 2015 to qualify.
