A number of practicing architects work for and with Architizer, and from within the profession, we understand that design professionals can’t produce brilliant buildings on their own. From concept to construction, creating great architecture relies upon great teamwork: architects, engineers, environmental consultants, contractors, subcontractors and building-product manufacturers all have key roles to play.

In celebration of this fact, Architizer has launched an exciting and insightful series of articles under the collective title “Behind the Building”. These special features uncover the manufacturers and products that help architects bring their visions to reality — we go “behind the building” to bring you the secret ingredients of innovative design.

Now, it’s your turn! Enter your project’s details below for a chance to make your project part of the series:

Here are a few examples of how your project could appear on Architizer:

Behind the Building: Grace Farms by SANAA

Behind the Building: Lewis Arts Complex by Steven Holl Architects

Behind the Building: Harbin Opera House by MAD

The competition is free to enter; all you have to do is satisfy the following requirements and submit the requested information.

Eligible projects must:

  • Have been completed in the last 12 months
  • Be the work of your firm alone, or submitted with the express permission of any collaborating firms
  • Be uploaded on to your firm profile on Architizer’s database
  • Include at least 8 high resolution professional photographs

To complete your entry, fill out the form above with a list of 10 or more products and materials used in your project, together with the manufacturer that created them. It’s that simple! If selected, your project will be given its own dedicated article, like Steven Holl Architects’ Lewis Art Complex did here:
