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.
This year’s theme, Hypotheses, recognized that the early part of an architect’s career could be described as time spent in a laboratory, experimenting with existing and new theories of architecture and design. Projects were sought which demonstrate the development and testing of an individual hypothesis for generating architectural forms and ideas.
