  • (im)permanence: 2016 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers

     

    June 29, 2016 - July 30, 2016

    The Architectural League Prize is one of North America’s most prestigious awards for young architects and designers. The Prize, established in 1981, recognizes exemplary and provocative work by young practitioners and provides a public forum for the exchange of their ideas. Each year The Architectural League and the Young Architects + Designers Committee organize a portfolio competition. Six winners are then invited to present their work in a variety of public fora, including lectures, an exhibition, and on the League’s website. 

    This year’s theme for the portfolio competition, (im)permanence, asks how time affects architecture’s assertion of style, methods of assembly, and relationship to program, thus altering our expectations of permanent structures in an impermanent environment. Join us for lectures from the winners on June 28th and June 30th.

    This year's winners are:

    • Rania Ghosn and El Hadi Jazairy, DESIGN EARTH, Cambridge, MA and Ann Arbor, MI
    • Neeraj Bhatia, The Open Workshop, San Francisco, CA
    • Hubert Pelletier and Yves de Fontenay, Pelletier de Fontenay, Montreal, Canada
    • Juan Alfonso Garduño Jardón, G3 Arquitectos, Querétaro, Mexico
    • Neyran Turan and Mete Sonmez, NEMESTUDIO, San Francisco
    • Yasmin Vobis and Aaron Forrest, Ultramoderne, Providence, RI

    The exhibition will be open daily 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and late Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m. The exhibition will also be open on the evenings of the lectures. Admission is free.
