Traditionally, the AIA announces its various awards, including the Architecture Awards, in the months leading up to the AIA Conference on Architecture. The two previous years were no different, except for the fact the conferences had shifted to strictly virtual formats due to the coronavirus pandemic. This year marks a return to in-person programming, with the AIA Conference on Architecture 2022 scheduled to take place in late June in Chicago. The following winners, announced recently on the AIA website, will be celebrated at the annual gathering, as will the numerous winners of other AIA awards. 

The eleven winning projects are listed below in alphabetical order by project name, with links to the projects on the AIA website and other relevant links on World-Architects. The nine-member jury that determined the winners is at bottom.
