Public spaces were also recognized and 17 awards went to schools and universities. The most-honored architectural firm was Rick Mathers Architects, which was recognized for four of its projects: the Ashmolean Museum, Corpus Christi College, LJMU Art & Design Academy and Towner.

The Pritzker dinner and awards ceremony was held at the Immigration Museum on historic Ellis Island. Among the duo's buildings are the Glass Pavilion of the Toledo Museum of Art and the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City.
