Support: 2017 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers - exhibition

Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003

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, Support identified a present situation in which precarious forms and precarious social arrangements exist side by side. How does one clarify the modes of support in architecture today when the discipline’s role is obscured by a tangled network in which exchanges between built form and various systems of framing, assistance, and reinforcement are constantly in flux? 

This year’s winners are: 

  • Jonathan Louie and Nicole McIntosh, Architecture Office, Syracuse, NY
  • Michelle JaJa Chang, Houston, TX 
  • Kevin Hirth, KEVIN HIRTH Co., Denver, CO 
  • Mustafa Faruki, theLab-lab for architecture, New York, NY 
  • Isabel Martínez Abascal and Alessandro Arienzo, LANZA Atelier, Mexico City 
  • Greg Corso and Molly Hunker, SPORTS, Syracuse, NY 

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.
