Polish Architecture XXL 2023 plebiscite: choose the best project of the year!

Take part in the Poland Architecture XXL 2023 plebiscite and cast your vote for the best architectural realisation of the past year. The aim of the competition is to honour the most creative studios and projects of 2023 realised in Poland. This is the only plebiscite that covers all areas of design: volume, interiors and landscape. Traditionally, the winners will be selected in two ways. The public and a professional jury vote. Internet voting will continue until 8 April 2024 until the end of the day.

The Polska Architektura XXL plebiscite is the most comprehensive overview of the activities of the Polish architectural industry. As part of it, projects are selected in three areas: volume, interiors and landscape, each divided into two categories – public and private buildings. A Grand Prix award will also be given.

By making use of the possibilities offered by the Internet, the plebiscite aims to reflect the state of Polish architecture and the changes taking place on the Polish design scene. At the same time, the plebiscite does not focus only on the best-known studios, but also allows less well-known, ambitious offices from smaller centres or those that want to set new trends and paths for Polish architecture with their interesting achievements. In this sense, it is also an excellent platform for promoting ambitious new design studios.

Criteria for selecting projects

For this year’s edition of the plebiscite, it was possible to submit buildings completed in 2023 as well as those that did not take part in Polish Architecture 2022 but were commissioned in 2022.

The criteria for selecting the most interesting buildings were their functionality, innovation, compliance with current social, environmental and technical trends. We were also looking for works by offices and teams that are not yet part of the mainstream of Polish architecture, but are distinguished by their ambition and creative approach to design, comments the editors of the Sztuka Architektury Group.

The results of the internauts’ vote will be announced on 9 April 2024, while the results of the experts’ vote will be announced at the Polish Architecture XXL 2023 Plebiscite Gala to be held in late May/early June 2024.
