The Architectural League of New York announced a new set of winners for the 2015 Architectural League Prize, considered to be one of North America's most prestigious awards for young practitioners. North America-based Architects and designers out of school 10 years or less are invited every year to submit the best of their portfolios pertaining to the competition's theme.
The 2014-15 Young Architects + Designers Committee — which comprises of previous League Prize winners Carrie Norman, John Rhett Russo, and Jenny Sabin — selected "Authenticity" as this year's competition theme. The theme sought submissions that explore how design, technology, and practice challenge authenticity within architecture, and how authenticity can be treated more as a pursuit that can continuously develop and influence a young designer's practice -- as opposed to a form of validation or as an essential quality.
Here are the 2015 winners and some of their works:
Winners will lecture for two nights (Night I, Night II) next month and exhibit their work starting June 23 until August 1, 2015 at Parsons The New School for Design. The League will also post exclusive interviews and other extra features with the winners in the coming weeks here.
