How to Get Published in the World’s Most Beautiful Architecture Book

Every architect now has the chance to see their work published internationally.

The A+Awards is the world’s largest awards program celebrating architecture and building-products. Enter your project or product before the extended entry deadline on May 10th!

If you are a fan of ELEMENTAL, Grafton Architects or Snøhetta, you may already be in possession of a gorgeous hardback book containing their work. Thanks to global publisher Phaidon, these firms enjoy arguably the most powerful marketing platform there is: a permanent presence in a high-end print publication.

Given the high costs involved in getting published, this has not traditionally been an option for 99% of architects — a situation that only serves to increase the visibility gap between the elite “star” architecture firms and the rest.
