June 8, 2023

Recorded on April 5, 2023.

Announced just a few months before the onset of the pandemic, the theme of the 2020 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers asked entrants to consider how notions of value operate in their work.

To mark the publication of Young Architects 22: Value, the 2020 League Prize winners gathered to reflect on how their work has changed since the watershed spring and summer of 2020, and to discuss how value, in its multiple meanings, continues to shape their work. 

The program recording features presentations from all six 2020 League Prize winners: 

David Eskenazi, d.esk
Garrett Ricciardi and Julian Rose, Formlessfinder
Leslie Lok and Sasa Zivkovic, HANNAH
Isaac Michan Daniel, Michan Architecture
Ivi Diamantopoulou and Jaffer Kolb, New Affiliates
Luis Beltrán del Río García and Andrew Sosa Martínez, Vrtical

The presentations are followed by a discussion and Q&A moderated by the members of the 2020 Young Architects + Designers Committee, Kutan Ayata, Mira Henry, and Kevin Hirth.
