The League’s monthly First Friday events are informal social gatherings that allow members to visit the offices of leading design practices and see work on the boards.
Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects has designed public and private projects including museums, parks, transportation terminals, government facilities, private residences, exhibitions, and installations, as well as furniture and objects. According to the firm, the studio is inspired by an ongoing investigation into contemporary culture, serving as a “laboratory for speculation and making, for investigation and practice.”
Current and upcoming projects include:
- Zerega Avenue EMS Station in the Bronx, the first EMS station to implement FDNY’s new comprehensive EMS program. The landscaped roof serves as a fifth façade and achieves sustainability goals including capturing stormwater for reuse.
- The Dillon, an 83-unit residential complex in Midtown Manhattan combining maisonette, duplex, triplex, and studio apartments.
- Ohio State University ENGIE EAIC, an innovation center for energy research and technology incubation. The facility will be designed as a beacon of high-performance, energy-efficient design.
