Launched in 2002, the AR Future Projects awards are a window into tomorrow’s cities. Spanning 12 categories , they celebrate excellence in unbuilt and incomplete projects, and the potential for positive contribution to communities, neighbourhoods and urban landscapes around the world.

Entering the awards puts your work in front of a panel of highly respected judges and enables you to gain global recognition. All entries are published in the AR Future Projects awards catalogue, sent with the April 2022 issue of The Architectural Review to subscribers in 101 countries and distributed at MIPIM, the world’s leading real estate market event.

Past winners include White Arkitekter, SO-IL, Allies and Morrison, SOM, 5468796, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, 3XN Architects, Nikken Sekkei, CF Møller Architects, Studio MK27, Aedas and OMA.

This year we are also looking to receive entries for two new prizes recognising proposals that will never get built: student projects and unsuccessful competition entries . Find out more on the entry guidelines page.
