Architizer, the world’s leading online platform for architecture, announces the 10th Annual Architizer A+Awards winners. Founded on the premise of democratizing architecture, the A+Awards is the industry’s largest and most international awards program and honours the best architecture and spaces from across the globe.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, this season’s program was expanded to include the new “Firm of the Year” A+Awards, as well as introducing a diverse range of new jurors to help select the world’s most innovative and impactful contemporary architecture. After an unprecedented number of submissions were reviewed by the jury and the global public, the latest collection of winners forms a vibrant celebration of outstanding design from throughout the past decade.
“The quality of the work featured this year was both astounding and inspiring. Expressional use of light, colour and materiality were brilliantly displayed, and I was particularly impressed with projects that managed to successfully balance the critical regiments of various programs seamlessly against existing surrounding context and communities.”

In its 10th season, the A+Awards received over 5,000 entries from 100+ countries, including a plethora of innovative projects seeking to address the complex challenges facing the world today — from climate change and the COVID 19 pandemic to urbanization and economic inequity. Notable Jurors included Julie Eizenberg FAIA, FRAIA (Founding Principal, Koning Eizenberg Architecture), Jasmit Singh Rangr (President and Founder, Rangr Studio), Germane Barnes (Principal, Studio Barnes), Suchi Reddy (Principal, Reddymade), Yoko Choy (China editor, Wallpaper* magazine), and many more.
A Jury-selected Winner and a Popular Choice Winner were awarded in each of the 117 categories, with over 400,000 votes cast by the voting public.
“The winners of this year’s A+Awards not only form a wonderful exhibition of design innovation but also powerfully demonstrate architects’ enduring value to society. During these unprecedented times, firms across the globe are responding to big challenges with big ideas, continually striving to reimagine sustainable design, health-conscious architecture and socially responsible construction.”
Back for its eighth edition, the annual compendium Architizer: The World’s Best Architecture, published by Architizer for the first time, will feature every 2022 architecture winner. This stunning hardbound book will be released in fall 2022 and is the definitive guide to the year’s best buildings and spaces. Architizer’s companion competition, the A+Product Awards, honouring the architectural products, materials, lighting and furniture behind the world’s best buildings, will announce winners in October 2022.
