Architectural 
Visualization Award

Architectural visualizations are an important part of the industry, allowing architects and designers to express their creativity and inspiration. They are a vital tool that allows you to design without limits, creating intricate interpretations of buildings, structures, and even entire cities.

The way architectural visualizations are created has changed dramatically over the years, but no amount of technology can replace the creative thinking at the core of them.

The Architect's Sugar Architectural Visualization Award is the first competition in a series in which Buildner is calling for submissions from architects and enthusiasts to share some of their favorite work.

Buildner’s network of architects and designers are some of the most talented in the world, and the Architectural Visualization Award is a chance to highlight the best of the best.

Participants can submit any visualization that they have produced and are proud of. The visualization can portray anything architecturally related and can be previously published work, as long as they hold all the copyrights.

The selected winners and honorable mentions will be featured in the upcoming annual of Buildners' digital magazine in addition to receiving extensive media exposure.

The Architect's Sugar Architectural Visualization Award is one of the Buildners' silent competitions, in which participants must communicate without the use of any text solely through the use of visuals.
