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 to all readers of The Architectural Review, and distributed at two leading property events: MIPIM in Cannes and FOOTPRINT+ in Brighton. This year, we will be hosting the AR Future Projects winners’ lunch at the Brighton i360 alongside FOOTPRINT+ on 8 June 2023.

In addition to future work, we are also interested in unbuilt and speculative projects and ideas that are currently being tested and investigated: find out more about the prizes for student projects, competition entries and sustainable research and development on the  entry guidelines page.

The entries are now closed.
