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 (since Sept 2011).

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. Entries must be built projects completed within the past three years (since Sept 2011).

NEW! THE PRODUCT CATEGORIES
Every architect and designer knows it takes spectacular products and materials to make their designs a reality. Following on the tremendous success of last year's A+ Product Awards, we're proud to present 33 categories that speak to design solutions that matter most to architects. Products can be entered into multiple categories, but must be available on the open market in 2014.
