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 Rachel G. Barnard of Young New Yorkers; Gregory Melitonov of Taller KEN; and Virginia Black, Gabrielle Printz, and Rosana Elkhatib of feminist architecture collaborative.
The 2019 theme, Just, asked entrants to consider the just in how they approach the practice of architecture, whether through experimentation in research and design advocacy or by advancing speculative and applied techniques within the discipline.
