Throughout the years, some remarkable work has been featured, but there is clearly a growing trend to higher concept design among the judging panels on the different award programs. Metal building systems are increasingly more sophisticated, and the use of metal components has gained greater popularity in the U.S., resulting in designers pushing boundaries on the material’s capabilities.

Thank you to the dozens of people who have taken the time and effort to review and judge the submitted projects over the years.
