Urban Fold

The World's Best New Buildings, as Chosen by You

Architecture website Architizer has announced the 87 winners of its new A+ Award. Selected via jury and 150,000 votes, the awards honor buildings in 52 categories. If for no other reason, just check it out for the stunning images.

"We’ve always thought that the oh-so-private world of architecture should be opened up to the public at large, where people can consume buildings (and maybe even some archi-drama) like they do the daily news, food porn, and movie trailers," say the Architizer editors. "We can say now that the A+ Awards helped us achieve this—in addition to the overwhelming number of submissions from over 100 countries, plus the highly-esteemed jury we amassed, Public Voting garnered 150,000 votes from every corner of the world. And with that #humblebrag, onto the winners!"

"Instead of celebrating one architect and making architecture into something rarefied and arcane (ahem), the A+ Awards celebrate the diversity of the world’s architecture. The winners list runs the gamut of architectural typology and form, ranging from enormous towers to the smallest apartments and nearly everything in between."
