The awards program received thousands of entries from more than 95 countries, with a jury-selected winner and a Popular Choice winner in each of the 113 categories. (Popular Choice winners were determined by the more than 400,000 public votes tallied from more than 100 countries and territories.)
Award winners will be celebrated at a May 12 gala in New York. “The A+ gala is more than just a party. It represents a moment for us to stand up and champion our art, recognizing the transformational role that architecture plays in our lives,” says Architizer CEO Marc Kushner. “This year, we are expanding the fame, creating an even wider set of categories, celebrating the buildings and structures that impact our world, as well as the products and material used to create them.”
