Now in its 23rd year, The American Architecture Awards® are the nation’s highest and most prestigious distinguished building awards program that honor new and cutting-edge design in the United States. This annual program, organized by both our institutions, also promotes American architecture and design to our public audience in the U.S. and abroad.

This year, the Museum received a record number of projects for new buildings, landscape architecture, and urban planning from the most important firms practicing in the U.S. and globally. 

From a short list of 380 projects, the 2017 Jury for Awards was held in Athens, Greece, and 79 projects were selected by a distinguished group of Greek architects and educators. 

A full list of winning projects for 2017 is attached and can be viewed at our Museum's website at  or at
