In 2017, the American Architecture Prize introduced a comprehensive new award – the AAP - Firm of the Year Award. The award recognizes the full portfolio of firms while ensuring company resources and specializations are taken into consideration. Small, medium, and large companies were evaluated on their own terms by the esteemed AAP Jury. Firms were evaluated based on the dimensions of Design Excellence, Innovation & Contribution, and Expertise.
The Firm of the Year Award allows AAP to recognize architecture firms’ total body of work, in addition to the American Architecture Prize , which evaluates individual projects.
