Second annual Architizer A+ Awards

Brooklyn, United States, 2013-10-03 - Architizer announces the official opening of the 2nd Annual A+ Awards, honoring the Best Architecture, Spaces, and Products. With new categories, Product Awards, and an expanded jury panel, A+ is the definitive global architecture award program.

Architizer, in collaboration with its partners the Wall Street Journal and the Webbys, has created the biggest program for architecture in the world, with more than 1,500 entries from more than 100 countries in its first year. Designed to break architecture out of the echo chamber, the A+ Awards’ global audience exceeded 80,000,000 viewers, including 200,000 public votes. Winners were celebrated in New York with a gala event attended by President Mikheil Saakashvili of Georgia, fashion designer Thom Browne, CEO of the Nets Brett Yormark, and hundreds of others. You can see a video here .

Architizer’s Early Entry Deadline to submit works for consideration is
November 1, 2013. Finalists will be announced in March 2014, with the A+ Awards Gala held in the Spring of 2014 during NYCxDesign.

The illustrious jury from 2013, including notable industry leaders such as
Charles Renfro, Bjarke Ingels, and Tom Kundig, as well as people from beyond architecture like Ian Schrager (developer), Charles Adler (Kickstarter), John Edelman (Design Within Reach), and Barry Bergdoll (MoMA) will be joined by new jurors, including Denise Scott Brown, Harry Macklowe, and Alan Cumming. The diverse jury is emblematic of the unique approach Architizer is taking with the A+ Awards. The jury comprises architects, cultural leaders, key developers, brand managers, and other business luminaries who commission and support great architecture throughout the world.

“Architecture is everywhere and it is for everyone,” says Architizer CEO Marc Kushner. “That is why our jury includes people like Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos who is rebuilding downtown Las Vegas, and Harry Macklowe, who is developing the tallest residential tower in the world — and employing nearly a dozen architecture firms in the process!”

New in 2014, the Architizer A+ Awards introduces 15 Product Awards specifically aimed at product and brand manufacturers. The new vertical seamlessly fits into Architizer’s mission to connect projects to the products within them and presents an opportunity to celebrate innovative designs of all scales, from Products +Facades to Products +Apps. The award categories, open to all products available in 2014, vary from spatial to conceptual to address the needs of architects and designers practicing today.

“Every architect knows that a great project relies on great products,” Kushner continues. “That is why we are opening the awards up to product brands and manufacturers to be judged by our jury of architects and designers.”

All A+ Award entries will compete for the A+ Jury Award and our reputable judges will nominate five finalists within each category for the Popular Choice Award. The finalists are presented online, where professionals and design enthusiasts around the globe vote for their favorites during a highly publicized campaign. The A+ Popular Choice Winners are honored alongside the projects chosen by the jury. For more information on the The 2nd Annual Architizer A+ Awards, please visit architizerawards.com.
