The Best Architects 14 Awards showcase the most remarkable designs from the architectural community, making it one of the most prestigious architecture awards within the German-speaking countries. This year, 106 awards were presented out of 455 nominees. In addition, nine gold labels were given as special recognition to firms whose designs were of outstanding quality. And, out of the nine offices that received the coveted gold label, five use Vectorworks software to help them achieve award-winning designs.
