Emerging Voices 2008

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 2008 Emerging Voices are:

  • Belzberg Architects, Santa Monica
  • el dorado inc., Kansas City
  • Johnsen Schmaling Architects, Milwaukee
  • Moorhead & Moorhead, New York City
  • MOS, New Haven and Boston
  • Onion Flats, Philadelphia
  • Stoss Landscape Urbanism (StossLU), Boston
  • WORK Architecture Company (WORKac), New York City


Emerging Voices is generously supported by Maharam. The Emerging Voices program is also supported by the Next Generation Fund of the Architectural League. Architectural League programs are additionally supported, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Emerging Voices is organized by League Program Director Anne Rieselbach.
