by creativehomex

Architizer has just announced the shortlist for its 2023 A+Awards, the biggest and most inclusive architectural awards program in the world. The awards recognize outstanding architecture and spaces from all over the world.

This year’s program highlights architects and designers who are leaders in sustainable design. Over 5,000 entries were submitted from 96 countries, and the jury selected finalists in 120 categories. The 592 shortlisted projects excelled in judging criteria like form, function, and their social and environmental impact.

The 2023 finalists showcase exceptional architecture and demonstrate how architects are working towards a more sustainable built environment. Winning projects range from innovative timber constructions to eco-friendly housing and hospitality projects, as well as building adaptations and renovations.

These projects employ new technologies and approaches to meet the needs of their users and stakeholders, while featuring a diverse range of materials, designs, and programs.

The A+Awards is unique among global architectural awards, with shortlisted projects also judged by the voting public. With the aim to break architecture out of its echo chamber, each season Architizer invites design students, enthusiasts, building occupants, and the general public to vote for their favorite work. In 2022, over 400,000 ballots were cast.
