Now in its 24th year, The American Architecture Awards were announced by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies—organizers of this annual prestigious program for Design Excellence and for the best and nest contributions to innovative contemporary American architecture. 

The American Architecture Awards are the nation’s highest public awards given by a non-commercial, non-trade affiliated, public arts, culture and educational institution. 

From a shortlist of over 300 buildings and urban planning projects, this year’s American Architecture Awards went to exceptional buildings designed for every stage of our lives: skyscrapers, corporate headquarters, governmental buildings, science and technology centers, transportation centers, airports, hotels, parks, pavilions, restorations and renovations, retail facilities, housing projects, private homes, schools, universities, art, cultural and health buildings, urban planning and landscape architecture, interiors, and other humanitarian and educational initiatives. 

“The American Architecture Awards,” states Christian Narkiewicz-Laine, Museum President, The Chicago Athenaeum are the nation’s highest public awards dedicated to cutting edge design, sustainability, functionality, and aesthetics that reflect the character of contemporary architecture of our times.”

“This year’s winning projects at large and small scales and in urban, suburban and rural settings, illustrates the value and impact that great design can bring to any setting and to all communities.”
