The Architectural League of New York today announced the six winners of Range, the thirty-second annual Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers. The League Prize is one of North Americaʼs most prestigious awards for young architects.
This yearʼs winners are:
The League Prize is an annual portfolio competition organized by the Architectural League under the direction of League Program Director Anne Rieselbach and the Young Architects and Designers Committee. The committee, a group selected each year from past winners of the League Prize, is responsible for developing the programʼs theme and selecting competition jurors.
This yearʼs theme, Range, reflects the committeeʼs perception of young architectsʼ 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.”
Open to designers ten years or less out of school, the competition draws entrants from around North America. Winners will lecture in June and display their work in an exhibition on view through the summer. Their work will also be featured in a new volume of the Young Architects series jointly published by Princeton Architectural Press and the League, and their ideas and work will be featured in original interviews and video on the Leagueʼs website.
This year’s League Prize jury included Teresita Fernandez, artist and sculptor; Paul Lewis, principal, LTL Architects; Thom Mayne, principal, Morphosis Architects; Charles Waldheim, professor and Chair, Department of Landscape Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design; and Meejin Yoon, principal, Howeler + Yoon Architecture. Committee members were Benjamin Aranda, Aranda/Lasch; Seung Teak Lee, stpmj; and Michael Szivos, SOFTlab.
