Here are the world's favourite new buildings

A Manhattan skyscraper, a Chinese airport and a house on a sled in New Zealand all feature.

ONLINE ARCHITECTURE DATABASE Architizer announced the winners of their second Annual A+ Awards for the most incredible new architecture around the globe today. The result was a total of 129 winners in more than 60 categories.

Some of the categories included best museums, memorials, and government buildings, as well as concepts for best interior designs and products. All entries were built or conceived in the last three years.

The winners were decided both by a jury and by popular vote, creating two separate winners for each group.

The jury was comprised of “300 industry leaders,” while the popular vote was determined by public, online voting from over 100 countries.

We’ve highlighted some of our favorite winners here; see the full list at
