The Architectural League’s annual Emerging Voices program spotlights North American architects, landscape architects, and urban designers who have significant bodies of realized work and the potential to influence their field.

Young Projects won a 2020 award.

Bryan Young founded New York City-based Young Projects in 2010. The design studio’s work spans buildings, interiors, material prototyping, and furniture. Its practice, which emphasizes “the relationship between our material research and our approach to space itself,” is driven by a fascination with pattern, texture, and spatial complexity. Using experimental techniques for hand-pulling plaster and forming concrete with palm stems, Young Projects strives for “material and tectonic ambiguity … or at least the unexpected.”

Projects include:

Young received a BArch from the University of California at Berkeley and an MArch from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. He is currently an adjunct assistant professor at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at The Cooper Union.
