Since 1994, The American Architecture
Awards, organized by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture
and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and
Urban Studies, remain the United States' most comprehensive public
program that promotes the finest and most significant buildings,
landscape design projects and urban planning; either designed and
constructed by American architects in the U.S. and abroad, or
designed and constructed by international architects in the U.S.
The American Architecture Awards
reflect the changing state of global architecture and contemporary
building processes, revealing new design, sustainability
approach, structural and aesthetic directions by today’s
foremost practitioners. Dedicated to the recognition of excellence,
the program awards pay tribute to new developments in design of
commercial, corporate, institutional or residential buildings and
urban planning projects.
