2017 Architect 50 Official Site

Design Portfolio

The 2017 Architect 50 includes the submission of a design portfolio. The portfolio is designed to capture a quick snapshot of the breadth and the quality of your firm’s work. A small firm with a series of community-based projects can perform just as well as a global firm with an international portfolio.

A panel of judges chosen by ARCHITECT magazine will anonymously score each entry. The portfolio score will be used along with other factors to determine how your firm ranks in the design category of the program. Results will be published in the November 2017 issue of Architect magazine.

Before you submit your portfolio, you will first need to register for the ARCHITECT 50 survey. Please click here to register and receive your survey invitation and worksheet. Once registered, click here to upload your portfolio.

Please note: You will need to register twice: Once to receive the survey, and once to upload your portfolio
