NOTICE: Voting for the 5th Annual Architizer A+Awards has now closed. We apologize for any confusion. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 11.

It’s been a tumultuous and often divisive year to date, both inside and outside of architecture circles — but if there is one thing guaranteed to unite us, it is the opportunity to celebrate inspiring buildings and those that design them. That’s why it is with great pleasure that we can reveal that the finalists for the 2017 A+Awards — the world’s largest awards program for architecture and building products — are some of the most extraordinary projects yet.

Now, all that is needed is one extra ingredient — you! Today is the last chance to have your say on the globe’s greatest contemporary architecture and building products, using our free and quick online ballot.

The A+Awards prides itself on being the world’smost democratic awards program for architecture. Every project entered stands an equal chance of winning, regardless of where its designer is from, what type of building or product they designed or how well-known they are. You don’t need to be famous to win an A+Award — you just need to be a talented team or individual with an innovative and inspiring project.

Check out some of the incredible projects in the running this year …

Ask yourself: Does this project make the world a better place? Does it inspire me? Is it truly innovative? If so, vote now and celebrate the most incredible projects created by talented architects around the globe.

It’s fascinating to see just how much — or how little — people agree on what makes for truly great architecture!

Regardless, your votes will mean the world to the hardworking architects behind these inspiring projects, and the architectural community as a whole benefits from you and your friends having their say. The more votes cast in the A+Awards, the closer we get to an authentic reflection of great design today!
