The Architectural League’s annual Emerging Voices award spotlights North American individuals and firms with distinct design voices that have the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design. The jury reviews significant bodies of realized work and considers accomplishments within design and academia.

The work of each Emerging Voice represents the best of its kind and addresses larger issues within architecture, landscape, and the built environment.

The 2002 Emerging Voices are:

  • Beige Design, San Francisco
  • Kuth | Ranieri Architects, San Francisco
  • Lewis Tsurumaki Lewis Architects (LTL Architects), New York City
  • Marwan Al-Sayed Architects (MASA), Phoenix
  • OpenOffice Architects, New York City
  • Parallel Design Partnership, New York City
  • Specht Harpman, New York City
  • Zago Architecture, Detroit
