Architect 50 Official Site

Design Portfolio

The 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 anonymously scores each entry. The portfolio score is used along with other factors to determine how your firm ranks in the design category of the program.
