The Architect’s Newspaper is proud to announce its third annual Best Of Design Awards, a unique project-based awards program that showcases great buildings and building elements.
Entrants are invited to submit completed works in 18 categories that reflect A|N’s editorial coverage, as well as the interests and obsessions of our readers. From the winners of these categories, one will be chosen as Project of the Year.
The jury, composed of prominent architects and design professionals, will judge entries based on several criteria—strength of the presentation, evidence of innovation, creative use of new technology, sustainability, and, most importantly, good design.
