Accepted Formats/Entry Type Info

Architecture Categories
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. Entries must be BUILT projects completed within the past three (3) years, with the exception of the Unbuilt Categories..

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, with the exception of the ‘Architecture +Models & Rendering’ category.

Special Honorees

Entrants in all categories (Typology and Plus) will be entered into consideration for the A+Awards annual Special Honoree Awards. Special Honoree awards are presented to a small group of key influencers and projects each year. These honorees are chosen for their extraordinary contribution to the field of architecture and highlight projects that are championing architecture’s potential to positively impact everyday life.
