Celebrating the year's best buildings and spaces.
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. Architects shape 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
The World's Best Architecture is an annual compendium of the world's most inspiring architecture, published in partnership with Phaidon. Featuring both Jury and Popular Choice Award winners, it's the definitive guide to the year's best buildings and spaces. See the 2019 book here.

With the largest online architecture community on the planet, the A+Awards deliver unprecedented exposure for Winners. Picture your work in front of an audience of 7+ million via Architizer's Journal and social media channels, plus international media coverage in outlets like CNN, Al Jazeera, and the New York Times.
Our winners deserve a truly remarkable showpiece. That's why we work closely with some of the world's best awards designers to create a bespoke trophy that reflects our winners' outstanding design ethos and achievements.
The Future of Architecture
What does the future of architecture look like? Design today must meet the demands of growing populations, rapid urbanization, and unprecedented climate crises. The 8th Annual A+Awards will celebrate architects and designers at the forefront of this effort, those who are harnessing cutting-edge approaches and technologies to face the challenges of today and to build the cities of tomorrow.
