Accepted Formats/Entry Type Info

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 (3) years, after September 2012.

Plus Categories
Architecture is everywhere and touches everyone. 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 (3) years, after September 2012.

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 2015.
