Few building types signal the future of design better than housing. Quick turnaround times, hyper-engaged clients, and specific market needs make it an ideal laboratory for reinventing the fundamentals of shelter. For 17 years, the Residential Architect Design Awards have celebrated innovation and excellence at all scales and at all price points. The mission continues in the award program’s new home, ARCHITECT.
