Wood Design & Building Awards Open for Submissions
Awards honour excellence in the use of wood in architecture
The Wood Design & Building Awards program invites North American and International entries for their 2021-22 awards cycle honouring excellence in wood architecture. The program is an opportunity to discover and celebrate the world’s best wood architecture, in diverse locations and with a wide variety of typologies.
Entries should consist of building projects that show a wide range of wood product applications and demonstrate an understanding of the special qualities of wood, such as strength, durability, beauty, and cost-effectiveness.
All projects completed in the period between January 1st, 2018 and December 30th, 2021 are eligible, except for previous Wood Design & Building Award winners.
An architectural jury from Canada and the United States will consider creativity, appropriate use of wood materials for practical requirements, and innovative design. Winning projects will be showcased in the 2021-22 Celebrating Excellence in Wood Architecture book, an award video on our websites, and presented at education events throughout the year.
Projects can be submitted in six categories: Non-Residential, Residential, Architectural Interiors, Remodeled, International Building, and Other (Exterior Structures, Bridges, etc.)
Honor, Merit and Citation awards will be given at the discretion of the jury. Winning projects will be showcased in the 2021-22 Celebrating Excellence in Wood Architecture book, an award video and in a future edition of the Wood Design & Building magazine.
