League Prize 2020: Night 2
With David Eskenazi of d.esk and Leslie Lok and Sasa Zivkovic of HANNAH.
July 15, 2020
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 2020 Architectural League Prize features David Eskenazi of d.esk (Los Angeles, CA) and Leslie Lok and Sasa Zivkovic of HANNAH (Ithaca, NY).
The 2020 theme, Value, asked entrants to consider how notions of value operate in their work. How are values mediated by the processes of design? What are the discursive contexts, forms of representation, and/or spaces of action in which these values manifest themselves?
The online event will take place on the Zoom platform and will consist of an introduction by 2020 Young Architects + Designers Committee member Kutan Ayata, lectures by two winning firms, and a live moderated discussion and q&a.
The Architectural League Prize is made possible by Hunter Douglas Architectural, Kubany Judlowe, and Tischler und Sohn.
League programs are made possible, 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. Support is also provided 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.
