Winners of the Archdaily’s 2015 Building of the Year Awards


Archdaily is one of the architectural websites that I’m constantly checking on when I’m free. I get to know many interesting designs from articles published in that particular site. Every year, the website would select buildings featured in their Archdaily website for the past year as winners in several categories from their collective intelligence of over 31 000 architects across the world. These winners are picked from over 3 000 entries (projects) featured in the site in the year 2014.

The winning buildings represent a diverse group of architects, from Pritzker Prize winners such as Álvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and Shigeru Ban, to up-and-coming practices such as EFFEKT and Building which have so far been less widely covered by the media. In many cases their designs may be the most visually striking, but each also approaches its context and program in a unique way to solve social, environmental or economic challenges in communities around the world. By publishing them on ArchDaily, these buildings have certainly helped to impart inspiration and knowledge to architects around the world.

Here are the complete list of winners of the Archdaily’s 2015 Building of the Year Awards:

Total of 14 categories announced. In my personal opinion, I’m suggesting to include one or two more categories ; Skyscraper Architecture, and maybe Bridge Architecture.
