Since 2004, The International Architecture Awards, organized by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, promotes the best new design worldwide. The International Architecture Awards are the largest and most extensive global architecture awards program in the world, honoring not only large projects, but also some of the smaller, but no less ambitious and unique, projects, showing that budget, location or many other challenges are no constraints to the production of superb quality architecture.
The International 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 International Architecture Awards pay tribute to new developments in the design of commercial, corporate, institutional, or residential buildings and urban planning projects.
