All you need is a white cocktail napkin and pen to demonstrate that the art of the sketch is still alive. Two grand prize winners will be chosen (1 licensed architect, 1 related professional). Grand prize winners will receive a $300 gift card and a set of cocktail napkins with their winning sketch printed on it! The winning sketches will also be announced at and utilized on napkins at our Innovation Conference in October. The sketches of the winners and runners-up will be published in the November 2023 issue of Architectural Record and shown in the gallery below.
All architects registered in the United States or abroad, as well as interior designers working in collaboration with architects, are welcome to submit interiors-only projects—residential, commercial, institutional, and public—that have been completed in the last year. Special consideration will be paid to works that incorporate innovations in design, program, building technology, sustainability, and/or materials. Winning projects will be selected by an editorial jury and published in the September 2023 issue of Architectural Record.
A monthly contest from the editors of Architectural Record asks you to guess the architect for a building of historical importance. The contest begins on the first, and the deadline to enter is the last day of each month.
The editors at Architectural Record welcome the submission of your work for consideration. Although we receive a considerable volume of submissions, we review every project and offer a broad range of opportunities for publication.
