AR Future Projects awards
Launched in 2002, the AR Future Projects awards are a window into tomorrow’s cities. Spanning 12 categories, they celebrate excellence in unbuilt and incomplete projects, and the potential for positive contribution to communities, neighbourhoods and urban landscapes around the world.
AR Emerging awards
Launched in 1999, the AR Emerging awards grant early recognition to young designers and celebrate the architectural stars of tomorrow. Previous winners have included Shigeru Ban, Carla Juaçaba, Thomas Heatherwick and Frida Escobedo. While the AR can take no credit for their individual talents, the award galvanised the success of these designers by promoting them on a global stage.
AR New into Old awards
As the need for sustainable alternatives to building anew becomes increasingly urgent, the New into Old awards celebrate the creative ways buildings are adapted and remodelled to welcome new contemporary uses. Launched in 2017, the awards recognise the imaginative appropriation of existing structures, from innovative insertions to ambitious adaptations.
AR Public awards
Public space is a stage for human life, a place of democracy and collectivity. Open, accessible and abundant public space is crucial to the civic health of our cities and shared landscapes – a critical communal resource. As these spaces become increasingly threatened in the face of darkening commercial and political forces, the biennial AR Public awards recognise the importance of creating, rescuing and renovating public spaces.
The W Awards, formerly known as the Women in Architecture awards, celebrate exemplary work by women and non-binary people, from lifetimes of achievement to the work of those with bright futures ahead, from the design of the world’s most significant new buildings to contributions to wider architectural culture.
World Architecture Festival (WAF)
World Architecture Festival (WAF) is the largest global live awards event for architects and designers. The next edition will take place in Singapore from 6 - 8 November 2024. WAF is the only awards programme where all finalists present their projects live to a panel of judges at the festival in Singapore.
