Zaha Hadid Architects, Studio Fuksas, SOM and BIG are just a few of the 129 winners of the second annual Architizer A+ Awards. Architecture, interiors and products were judged both by jury and popular vote across more than 60 categories. They will be honored alongside additional special achievement winners at a gala on Thursday, May 15, in New York City.
"The A+ Awards are more than any one winner,” said Marc Kushner AIA and CEO of Architizer. “This year our 129 winners are a celebration of the breadth of architecture's influence and are an extraordinary cross-section of the relevance and innovation of the field."
In addition to the A+ Awards, Architizer will also reveal the winners of the Special Achievement Awards to those who have raised awareness and made various contributions within the field. Among last year’s honorees were Richard Meier (Lifetime Achievement), Iwan Baan (Relevance Award), and Friends of the High Line (Advocacy Award).
