Launched in 1999, the AR Emerging awards grant early recognition to young designers and celebrates the architectural stars of tomorrow. Established in response to the heavy-hitting Gold Medals, Pritzkers, and other lifetime achievement awards, the AR Emerging awards recognise a promising portfolio of work and propels young talent onto the international stage early in their careers.

Previous winners and finalists include Shigeru Ban, Anna Heringer, Thomas Heatherwick, Frida Escobedo, Sameep Padora, Dorte Mandrup, Li Xiaodong, and many more. Instituto Balear de la Vivienda (IBAVI) was announced as the winner of the AR Emerging awards 2022, along with Sher Maker who won the Peter Davey Prize and Sanchez Benton Architects who were highly commended.
