The 2024 Wood Design & Building Awards program is now open for submissions, inviting entries from talented architects and designers across North America and around the globe who are setting new standards of excellence in wood architecture. The Wood Design & Building Awards program recognizes design teams that are passionate about celebrating wood as a sustainable, versatile, and sophisticated building material. The program offers the chance to showcase innovative work and be part of a prestigious celebration of wood design.

Entries should showcase the use of wood products in any, or several, of their many forms and applications, demonstrating an understanding of the special properties of wood including strength, durability, beauty, and cost-effectiveness. 

A jury of prominent architects from Canada and the U.S. will review the submissions based on several considerations including creativity, design innovation, and appropriate use of wood materials to satisfy clients’ building and site requirements.
