New York, United States, 2017-03-13 - 

Architizer, the world’s largest platform for architecture, announces finalists for the 5th Annual Architizer A+Awards, which honors the world’s best Architecture, Spaces and Products. Over 5,000 entries from 100 countries were submitted, and esteemed jurors from the fields of design, technology, art, media and more, have chosen more than 400 finalists to move on to the next award phase: public voting.


This year’s finalists include lauded firms such as OMA, Zaha Hadid Architects and Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, as well as rising stars like ENSAMBLE Studio, Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP, and A+I (Architecture + Information). Selected projects range in scale from high-rises, like HOK’s 530 Mission Street, to corporate headquarters, such as IwamotoScott’s Pinterest HQ, to residential works and new community epicenters like the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art, designed by Solid Objectives - Idenburg Liu. Among the finalists are also temporary installations, interiors, and products, including Alison Brooks’ The Smile, erected for the London Design Festival, and Bjarke Ingels Group’s design for the Serpentine Pavilion. A full list of finalists can be found below.


Entrants in the 5h Annual Architizer A+Awards competed in 102 categories, including 21 new awards that highlight technological advances and design innovation, such as Apps & Digital Tools, and Co-Working spaces. See the full list of categories here.  


As in previous years, entrants were judged by a panel of luminaries that include Cynthia Rowley (Founder, Cynthia Rowley), Neil Blumenthal (Founder, Warby Parker), Bjarke Ingels (Principal, BIG), Jane Chu (Chairman, National Endowment for the Arts), Robin Chase (Founder, Zipcar), and Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy (Academy Award-winning Documentarian).


Public voting is an integral part of the Architizer A+Awards program, which is designed to “break architecture out of its echo chamber” (Marc Kushner, Architizer Founder and CEO) and bring the spaces that are shaping our world to the forefront of the public imagination. In 2016, more than 400,000 votes were cast to determine Popular Choice winners, providing exposure to over 4,000 Architects, designers, and technologists around the globe.


Public voting, which can be accessed at vote.architizer.com, will run through March 30th, 2017. The  2017 winners will be honored at the annual Architizer A+Awards gala at Highline Stages in New York City on May 11, 2017.  With over 400 attendees, the event is one of the most sought after tickets of New York City’s NYCxDesign program.
