AAP – The AAP Architecture Prize Announces New Award Program: The Firm of the Year 2017

January 17, 2017


AAP – The AAP Architecture Prize has introduced a comprehensive new award – The AAP Firm of the Year 2017. The mission of AAP is to celebrate excellence, creativity and innovation across  architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture. The AAP is a global platform that honors the greatest achievements in architecture and interior design.

The Firm of the Year Award recognizes the full portfolio of firms while ensuring company resources and specializations are taken into consideration. Small, medium, and large companies are evaluated on their own terms by the esteemed AAP Jury. The Call for Entries for the inaugural AAP Firm of the Year Award is open now.

Winners will receive an invitation to the AAP Winners Event in the fall to collect the AAP trophy, have extensive publicity showcasing their designs to a worldwide audience, and more. The award will be open for submissions for the next few months, but participants are encouraged to take advantage of the current early bird rates.

AAP President Hossein Farmani adds, “It is wonderful to be able to introduce such a comprehensive award into the architecture world. The work of small firms is different from the capacity of large firms to build projects. These unique qualities are to be recognized in the Firm of Year Award.”

The AAP Firm of the Year Award builds onto the AAP Architecture Prize’s existing award platform that recognizes excellence in design. The top winners of the 2016 AAP Architecture Prize include Gensler’s Shanghai Tower (Architectural Design of the Year), McBride Charles Ryan’s The Infinity Centre (Interior Design of the Year), and Turf Design Studio & Environmental Partnership’s Sydney Park Water Re-Use Project (Landscape Design of the Year).

The AAP Firm of the Year Award Early Bird Deadline is February 28th. Read about the entry guidelines here.
