The editors of Architectural Record are looking for the best emerging architecture firms from around the world to feature in our 2019 Design Vanguard issue.

Although we do not have an age limit, we try to select architects and designers who have had their own practices for less than 10 years. Winners will be featured in the June 2019 issue. There is no fee to enter.


Please visit to enter. Complete the fields and upload the following:

  1. A good quality, low-resolution PDF (no larger than 10 MB) containing images and descriptions of five to eight projects (both built and unbuilt). IMPORTANT: Please explain the status of each project. For example: is it a concept, a competition entry (and did you win?), commissioned by a client, designed/built on spec, under construction?
  2. A single PDF with the CVs of all your firm’s partners.


Email questions to [email protected]. (Please indicate DESIGN VANGUARD as the subject of the email.)
