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

The 6th Annual Architizer A+Awards

The A+Awards are bigger than just the architectural community. Entries are judged by more than 400 luminaries from fields as diverse as fashion, publishing, product design, real estate development, and tech. What architects do shapes every space and every place where people spend their lives, so we created the A+Awards to remind the world how important architecture is.

The A+Awards Book

A+Architecture is an annual compendium of the world’s best architecture, published in partnership with Phaidon. Featuring select A+Award winners and other works, it’s the definitive guide to the year’s best buildings and spaces.
