For the 2017 American Architecture Awards, 79 buildings have been shortlisted and selected as the victorious winners, honoured and celebrated as the best new buildings designed by American architects in the United States (US) and abroad, as well as by international architects for buildings designed and constructed in the US.

Hosted by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, as well as The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, the competition was judged by a panel of Greek architects, who had the unenviable task of choosing the winners from 300 outstanding buildings and urban planning projects.
