The Good Building Awards
Since 1980, the Good Building Awards have celebrated the exploration of architecture and urban planning. This year’s jury recognized 33 winning projects by 18 different architectural firms, including nine that design with Vectorworks software!
The Good Building Awards highlight architects, planners, and building owners who create remarkable buildings or help contribute to parts of buildings. The awards seek to motivate architects and building owners to work together to create inspiring architecture.
