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.

Product Categories
Foundation Categories For a building to stand the test of time, it needs products that have been similarly tested. The Foundation Categories represent the fundamental products and design solutions that matter most, project after project — these are the ‘tried and true’ building-products every practicing architect should know. Entries must have been available to market / in use for at least 2 years to qualify (before January 1, 2017).

Innovation Categories The Innovation Categories celebrate the products that are radically influencing how buildings are conceived and built today. With emphasis on cutting-edge materials, new production processes, and sustainable solutions, these are the products that will set the pace for the design industry of tomorrow. Must have been introduced to market in the last two (2) years (after January 1, 2017) to qualify.
