Last month, ArchDaily partnered with Floornature to launch a unique award for the international architecture community (http://www.archdaily.com/building-of-theyear/ 2009/). In these awards their readers had the chance to nominate and vote for the best projects featured in ArchDaily during 2009.
The first round featured more than 900 projects from 600 different architecture firms. Readers chose the finalists from each category and on February 7, only 65 projects remained in competition. After 20 days of final votes, the winners were selected. One of the key features of this competition is that everyone could vote for their favorite. The juries were the thousands of readers that visit ArchDaily every day. This gave the opportunity to small architecture offices like TYIN Tegnestue and NRJA to compete hand by hand with famous offices like BIG and Asymptote. ArchDaily would like to congratulate every winner and thanks everyone for making the first edition of it’s Building of the Year Award a very successful and exciting competition.
