2020 has been a year like no other — but some things don’t change. Well thought-out designs, robust detailing and timeless materials are as crucial as ever to the creation of great architecture and interiors. Architects are increasingly aware that their best hope for a successful project stems from collaboration with the makers of high quality building products, those that have an intimate knowledge of materials and the fabrication processes behind them.
For this reason, the 2020 A+Product Awards eBook — your definitive guide to the World’s Best Building Products — is of vital importance to the AEC industry. In this publication, you will find brands and products you can trust to help in the construction of better buildings in the years to come. Each one comes with the A+ seal of approval, winning either the Juror’s Vote — comprising renowned architects and designers from around the globe — or the Popular Choice award, voted for by hundreds of thousands of savvy consumers of design across Architizer’s community.
