Rules & Eligibility:

The Architect of the Year Awards are unique, as we judge a body of work, rather than one-off projects. For each project category, you are required to submit at least two projects (and a maximum of 4). 

At least one of the projects should have been completed in the year between 1 December 2020 – 1 December 2021, and you must supply at least one other project (either built or unbuilt) which has been completed within the last 3 years.
