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 following served as the prompt for the 1993 League Prize competition entry:
“In the past, each Young Architects Forum has had a specific theme which has served as a means to organize, edit, and explain the work presented. This year, instead, entrants should include a narrative of 200 words or less establishing a context through which their work can be evaluated, in essence creating a theme for the work presented. The narrative should not just describe the projects, but should explain the ideas that link or are embodied in the work.”

The jury included Paul Byard, Jackie Ferrara, Mario Gandelsonas, and Rosalind Krauss.
