This is the second year of the Architizer A+ Awards, a competition that honors the best innovations in architecture and design. With over 60 categories and 200 judges, the Awards offer a comprehensive picture of all the incredible work happening in design right now. Many of the projects are immersive and interactive installations that respond to visitors through light, movement, and sound. Others show great strides in materials and form, including a glowing dome made from water bottles and an airport terminal shaped like a honeycomb. All of the designs harness the most advanced technologies to change our conception of what architecture can achieve. We compiled some of the best projects in the Architizer A+ Awards for our list of 13 Projects That Represent the Future of Design.
