Now, it’s your turn to participate in shaping the outcome. Every vote propels us closer to an authentic portrayal of contemporary architectural brilliance.

The A+Awards finalists paint a compelling vision for a hopeful future rooted in this year’s theme of rethinking what architecture can be. Creative courage is common across all of this year’s finalists; together, this cohort demonstrates architects’ incredible ability to respond to society’s changing needs, our growing climate crisis, and technology’s rapid evolution. Regenerating, reusing, rethinking, reinventing and reimagining architecture, this year’s finalists set positive precedents for the next generation of architects.
