On May 11, some of the world's greatest new buildings will be honored at the Architizer A+ Awards
ceremony in New York.
This year, 5,000 entries competed in 102 categories, including commercial and residential concept and built spaces. A jury-selected winner and a popular choice winner, determined from public votes, will be awarded in each of the categories.
Six special awards
will be given to honorees "recognized for their outstanding work and in design," according to a press release. British architect David Adjaye and his firm Adjaye Associates will be honored for The National Museum of African American History and Culture
in Washington, and Buro Koray Duman, the firm behind New York City's future Islamic Cultural Center
, will be awarded Emerging Firm of the Year.
