The 8th Annual Architizer A+ Awards just announced five finalists per category who will vie for both the Jury Award and the Popular Choice Award. Architizer, the world’s largest platform for architecture, announced the official nominations across 100+ categories ranging from typology projects, materials and technology applications, and new architectural products.
Sky Factory earned two finalist nominations. The first was for the Aperture SkyCeiling, a bi-sensory oculus that features a unique mechanical design for virtual skylights. Aperture was nominated in the Lighting: Contract Lighting category. At the same time, the INFINITY SkyCeiling, the first biophilic illusion of sky designed as a suspended ceiling cloud, secured the company’s second nomination in the Finishes: Ceilings category.
Architizer’s professional jury will evaluate each of the five finalists in every product category according to rigorous criteria that includes aesthetics, performance, and impact on the built environment. While the Jury Award is bestowed by secret vote, what makes the Architizer A+ Awards a true global celebration of architectural design is the Popular Choice Award, which is open to the public.
In collaboration with its official partners, Phaidon, the publishing house, NYCxDESIGN, the iconic design festival, and The Webby Awards, celebrating excellence in web design, the A+ Awards allow the community-at-large––architects, designers, design lovers, and the general public––to cast a vote in every single category, effectively placing their collective voice on par with the votes cast by industry leaders.
In 2019, the Architizer Awards received over 5,000 entries from over 100 countries while the netizens of the World Wide Web cast over 400,000 votes.
