Young Architects 3: City Limits

The third in a series of books documenting the work of winners of The Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers

City Limits presents the work of the best of a new generation of architects, as selected by the jury of the Architectural League’s annual Young Architects competition. This year’s winners were asked: In what ways do current modes of architectural production address cities as artifacts and cities as visions? The responses are varied and accomplished, from Petra Kempf’s hand drawn series of diagrams of urban movement, transportation, and form, to Teddy Cruz’s ongoing involvement in the development of the US/Latin American border, through SERVO’s series of product lines, Thaddeus Briner’s design for a football stadium, Manifold’s RANT project, a design for Manhattan’s east side, and nARCHITECTS’s Hotel Pro Forma. Together these exciting new designers explore the possibilities for urban development in adroit texts and dazzling graphics.
