In the first year of the AIT Awards we received submissions from 47 countries. This immediately made the award, which was launched in 2012, one of the largest competitions for architecture and interior design in the world. Since then, the AIT-Award | Best in Interior and Architecture combines interior design and architecture in one prize every two years, with a focus on the architectural centers of the world (Europe, North America, Middle East and Far East).
Award in various categories—all types of architectural projects and interior design can be submitted. An international jury of architects and interior designers awarded in each category an award for the best project, the jury meeting traditionally takes place in St. Katharinen church in the immediate vicinity of the Hamburg AIT-ArchitekturSalon.
The placements usually get announced by the jurors during a festive award ceremony in the presence of the nominated architecture offices during Light + Building fair in Frankfurt, followed by exhibitions in the AIT-ArchitekturSalons.
