Celebrating the rising stars in architecture

Launched in 1999, the AR Emerging awards grant early recognition to young designers and celebrates the architectural stars of tomorrow.

Previous winners have included Carla Juaçaba, Shigeru Ban, Rick Joy, Ana Heringer, Sou Fujimoto, Thomas Heatherwick, Neri & Hu, Li Xiaodong and Frida Escobedo.
