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. 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.
The Product categories represent those products and materials that speak to the design solutions that matter most to architects. Whether cutting-edge technology or fundamental materials used in project after project, these are the products that every architect should know today and that are setting the pace for the design industry of tomorrow. Products Categories must must be available to market by January 1, 2020 to qualify.
Entrants in all categories (Typology, Plus and Product) 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.

Entries must be entered online using the online entry form. An entry is considered processed after a completed entry form is received by Architizer A+Awards and payment for the entry fee is received.
