Winners of the 2022 Building of the Year Awards announced

Following the numerous votes received, the winners of the 2022 ArchDaily Building of the Year Awards have been announced. The peer-reviewed, crowdsourced architecture award showcases projects chosen by ArchDaily readers who filtered through thousands of projects to the top 15 entries featured on ArchDaily in 2021. As in previous years, the winners showcase a broad spectrum of different building types, giving an idea of how diverse the profession has become in recent decades.

High-profile firms take their place as always, with winners such as MVRDV’s Housing project in Bordeaux and Kengo Kuma’s Casa Batllo installation proving that establishment firms are still able to make their mark, as in more traditional award schemes. Alongside these are previously unsung newcomers such as PALMA and HANGHAR with their Types of Spaces project. The winners also include Ca’n Terra House by ENSAMBLE STUDIO and Plaza of Kanagawa Institute of Technology by Junya Ishigami + Associates, extremely creative projects that now challenge their typologies.

The winners have one crucial element in common in their diverse beauty: they represent the values of ArchDaily’s mission to bring inspiration, knowledge and tools to architects around the world. Supported by companies who choose to publish their projects, ArchDaily and Building of the Year Awards were also encouraged by the community of readers who took an integral part in the selection process. The awards showcase a broad selection representative of the vast contemporary architectural landscape and its most outstanding works.
