For the fifth time, AIT and AIT-Dialog offered the internationally highly regarded interior design/architecture award, thus following on from the successful competitions held in 2012 to 2018.
The AIT-Award is divided into 14 categories: all architectural projects and interiors completed in the last two years were eligible for entry. The two special themes “Mixed-use” and “Social Design / Participatory Architecture” were also included. Furthermore, a separate category was dedicated to “young architects”.
A total of 877 projects from 47 countries were submitted for the AIT-Award 2020 | Best in Interior and Architecture. The top-class jury selected the ten to fifteen best projects in each category on 23 and 24 January 2020 in Hamburg. The exact rankings will be announced at the award ceremony.
This year’s finalists come from Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA.

The rankings will be announced by the jurors and the AIT editorial team on 30 September 2020 during a festive award ceremony in the presence of the nominated interior design/architecture firms in the context of Light + Building in Frankfurt am Main.
