AR Awards celebrate creativity related to a building type or subject area. This year we seeking out the best libraries (and other buildings for books) completed anywhere in the world since January 2013. Libraries could be for private or public clients, and at scales ranging from the domestic to designs for national institutions (government, universities). Other book-related buildings could include bookshops, bookstores with additional facilities, and book repositories.
International in scope and propositional in outlook, the AR Awards commend and celebrate design excellence and innovation across a range of building types. The AR is at the heart of global architecture and this exciting awards programme seeks out transformative, leading-edge projects from around the world.
