The A+Awards live at Architizer.com, the largest online community of architects in the world, with an audience 7+ million strong. But the awards are bigger than just the architectural community. Entries are judged by distinguished luminaries from fields as diverse as design, technology, real estate, fashion, and more. Finalists and winners are recognized in as the year’s most influential visionaries online and in print — and the buzz is huge.
Our reputable judges nominate five finalists within each award category. These finalists are then presented online where design practitioners and enthusiasts from around the globe vote for their favorites during a highly publicized campaign. The winners of the A+ Popular Choice Awards are honored alongside Jury Winners. In 2018, we received over 400,000 public votes.
In addition to inclusion on the A+Awards Winners Gallery and publication on Architizer.com, all Winners receive the A+Awards Trophy. We want to give our winners a truly remarkable showpiece. That’s why we worked closely with some of the world’s best awards designers to create a bespoke trophy that reflects our winners’ outstanding design ethos and achievements. In addition to the A+Awards Trophy, select Winners are featured in the annual A+Awards compendiums The World’s Best Architecture (published by Phaidon) and The World’s Best Products (e-book published by Architizer). Special Honorees each season receive bespoke coverage on Architizer.com.
Architizer: The World’s Best Architecture is an annual compendium of the world’s most inspiring architecture, published in partnership with Phaidon. Featuring select A+Awards winners, who are chosen by our illustrious jury from thousands of entries around the globe, A+Architecture is the definitive guide to the year’s best buildings and spaces.
