Leeds Architecture Awards 2019 logo

The Leeds Architecture Awards are a celebration of excellence in architectural design.

The awards aim to promote a sense of pride in the new developments that are reshaping the city of Leeds and making a major contribution to its future development and prosperity. They recognise and reward innovation, sustainability and the team work that is at the heart of successful development and regeneration.

Leeds has an ambition to become the best city in the UK and the quality of its architecture and built environment has a crucial role to play in realising this ambition. Great cities have great architecture but great places are ultimately about people and it is only by creating great places for people to live, work and visit that Leeds will truly become the best city in the UK.
