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. Categories broadly include residential, office, commercial, transportation, cultural, institutional, landscape, and student projects. To be recognized amongst the best is an incredible achievement worthy of praise—and perhaps a bit of bragging. Entries must be built projects completed within the past three years.

THE PLUS CATEGORIES
Architecture is everywhere and touches nearly every person on earth every day. The Plus Awards are designed to celebrate architecture’s relevancy through categories that highlight the issues confronting the world. The newness of these issues means that these awards are open to built and unbuilt projects conceived in the past three years.



THE PRODUCT CATEGORIES (new)
Every architect and designer knows that it takes spectacular products to bring their designs to reality. This year Architizer is proud to introduce Product Awards in 15 innovative categories that address the issues that architects care most about. Products can be entered into multiple categories, but must available for purchase in 2014.
