The Young Architects + Designers Committee, a group selected each year from past winners of the League Prize, is responsible for developing the program’s theme and selecting competition jurors. This year’s committee members were Benjamin Aranda, Seung Teak Lee, and Michael Szivos. The theme, Range, reflects the committee’s perception of young architects’ careers as explorations of “potential boundaries with practices that are radical, that search the edges of the discipline to find its limits.” The committee called for designers to express “the range [they] operate within and how that range reacts as [they] encounter perceived limits of the profession.” The winning designers explored the formal and methodological possibilities of “range” from large-scale landscapes to intricate objects.
The exhibition will also be open on the evenings of the lectures.
The League thanks the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons The New School for Design for co-sponsoring and hosting the League Prize exhibition and lectures.
