Established in 1981 to recognize visionary work by young practitioners, The Architectural League Prize is an annual competition, lecture series, and exhibition led by the League and its Young Architects + Designers Committee.
Architecture is a profession of ideas. But how do architectural ideas resonate beyond professional boundaries? The 2008 competition asked entrants to consider how architects’ ideas and acts take effect.
The winners included:
- Lonn Combs of EASTON+COMBS Architects
- Mark Foster Gage of Gage/Clemenceau Architects
- Ana Miljacki & Lee Moreau of PROJECT_
- Ben Pell & Tate Overton of PellOverton
- Xu Tiantian of DnA_Design and Architecture
- Kathy Velikov & Geoffrey Thün of RVTR
The year’s competition theme was developed by the 2008 Young Architects + Designers Committee, which comprised past League Prize winners Julie Beckman, Chris Lasch, and Jonathan Lott.
The jury included Beckman, Lasch, and Lott, in addition to Karen Fairbanks, Jesse Reiser, Mark Robbins, and Calvin Tsao.
The competition is organized by The Architectural League’s program director, Anne Rieselbach.
