2019 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers - Exhibition

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. 

The idea that an architectural work might be just—whether formally, materially, contextually, culturally, or otherwise—invokes the diverse and interdependent concerns that shape contemporary practice. In its myriad references, Just explores the implicit tensions between architecture’s affinity for the just so in materials, tectonics, and organization, and a call to act justly.

Just explores architectural action with the understanding that a multiplicity of coexisting and contradictory attitudes may be constructive, liberating, and justified. This year’s Architectural League Prize competition asks entrants to consider the just in how they approach the practice of architecture, whether through experimentation in research and design advocacy or by advancing speculative and applied techniques within the discipline.

 

This year’s winners are: 

Jennifer Bonner, MALL, Atlanta, GA / Boston, MA
Rachel G. Barnard, Young New Yorkers, New York, NY
Gregory Melitonov, Taller KEN, New York, NY / Guatemala City, Guatemala / San José, Costa Rica
Virginia BlackGabrielle Printz, and Rosana Elkhatib, feminist architecture collaborative, New York, NY
Mira Hasson Henry, Henry Architecture, Los Angeles, CA
Cyrus Peñarroyo, EXTENTS, Ann Arbor, MI

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. The galleries will be closed Thursday, July 4.  Admission is free.
