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.
The 2017 competition asked architects to consider what props up the discipline today. The theme was developed by the 2017 Young Architects + Designers Committee, which comprised Erin Besler, Aaron Forrest, and Sung Goo Yang.
The jury included Besler, Forrest, and Yang, in addition to Sylvia Lavin, Guy Nordenson, Mark Robbins, and Shohei Shigematsu.
The competition is organized by The Architectural League’s program director, Anne Rieselbach.
