The Architectural League Prize, established in 1981, recognizes exemplary and provocative work by young practitioners and provides a public forum for the exchange of their ideas.

Geoffrey von Oeyen is founder and principal of Los Angeles-based Geoffrey von Oeyen Design.

In his League Prize lecture, von Oeyen describes how he leverages geometry to strategically address site, particularly using light and landscape to shape a building’s form. He presents nine projects: the Overlay gallery exhibit; Case Room, a study for two attorneys; Shadow Box Pavilion, a conceptual study on shadows and diffuse light; Pool House, an unbuilt guesthouse on a hillside; Horizon House, an update of a 1960s ranch house in Malibu; Y-House, a family retreat in Marfa, TX; the PIRL canopy that forms an outdoor teaching space; the Resinet Pavilion at the Blue Tape Exhibition, USC; and Casa Dunas, a conceptual design of movement and water flow.
