You've entered for a chance to achieve architectural glory, voted on your favorites, and counted down the days until the winner announcement. Well, the wait is over: We are very excited to present the winners of the 2015 Architizer A+Awards!
As with last year, we're pleased to recognize architecture in the Typology and Plus Categories, as well as Products in dedicated categories of their own. A highly-esteemed jury of over 300 industry leaders — including Iwan Baan, Charles Adler, Sou Fujimoto, Natasha Jen, Tom Kundig, and Beatrice Galilee — selected the Jury Winners, while an online public vote determined the Popular Choice winners.
- Over 3,000 entries from 80 countries
- 150 total winners
- 43,000 voters from over 100 countries and territories
Given the number of strong contenders, each and every one of the winners has earned its place among the best of the best, and we are once again thrilled to see the up-and-coming firms join the likes of major, multinational firms among the winners.
Not only will we be celebrating the winners at our annual A+Awards Gala in New York on May 14, but this year also sees an exciting new initiative to provide further exposure to the winners. For this year's program, Architizer has partnered with Phaidon — the premier global publisher of the creative arts — to publish an annual compendium of the A+Award winners, which will also be released on May 14!
