Our A+ trophy, designed by Snarkitecture!
NYCxDESIGN, New York City’s first design festival, is in high gear—establishing the Big Apple’s reputation as the Design Capital of the World. And Architizer is a part of it.
Bookended by the Frieze Art Fair at the beginning and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) near the end, NYCxDESIGN, which runs through May 21, brings together culture, education, commerce, and entertainment with hundreds of events ranging from exhibitions and installations to trade shows, talks, and open studios. But more than that, the festival aims to merge culture with commerce, and to bring design to all audiences.
That’s where Architizer comes in. As the world’s largest architecture website, Architizer is similarly committed to connecting design with the people by bringing architecture out of the echo chamber. Which is why we launched the Architizer A+ Awards, the biggest architectural awards program in the world, with 50+ categories and more than 200 jurors. Instead of celebrating one architect and making architecture into something rarefied and arcane, the A+ Awards celebrate the diversity of architecture around the globe, with entrants coming from more than 100 different countries. More after the jump!
