The League Prize is an annual competition that has been organized by The Architectural League since 1981. Open to designers ten years or less out of school, it draws entrants from around North America.
The second evening of lectures by winners of The Architectural League Prize features Anya Sirota of Akoaki; Alison Von Glinow and Lap Chi Kwong of Kwong Von Glinow Design Office; and Dan Spiegel of SAW // Spiegel Aihara Workshop
The 2018 theme, Objective, asked entrants to consider objectivity today as simultaneously elevated and undermined, in an era in which technology, science, and post-truths coexist. How do we define or understand architecture in a post-truth world?
The Architectural League Prize receives generous support from Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown, Hunter Douglas Architectural, and Tischler und Sohn. The League Prize is also supported by the Next Generation Fund, an alumni fund of The Architectural League’s Emerging Voices and Architectural League Prize programs, and the J. Clawson Mills Fund of The Architectural League. Architectural League programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. The League thanks the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, Parsons School of Design / The New School, for co-sponsoring and hosting the League Prize exhibition and lectures and the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons School of Design / The New School for their additional support.
