Open to designers ten years or less out of school, the competition draws entrants from around North America. The lecture series and exhibition by winners of the competition provide a lively public forum for the discussion of their work and ideas. This year’s theme for the portfolio competition, (im)permanence, asks how time affects architecture’s assertion of style, methods of assembly, and relationship to program, thus altering our expectations of permanent structures in an impermanent environment. The exhibition and lecture series are co-sponsored by the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, Parsons School of Design at The New School. Tonight’s lecture includes Juan Alfonso Garduño Jardón of G3 Arquitectos; Neyran Turan and Mete Sonmez of NEMESTUDIO; and Yasmin Vobis and Aaron Forrest of Ultramoderne. There will be an introduction from Gerald Bodziak, 2010 League Prize winner and co-founder of ABRUZZO BODZIAK ARCHITECTS.
The Architectural League Prize is made possible by Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown, USAI Lighting 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, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Support is also provided by the Next Generation Fund, an alumni fund of The Architectural League’s Emerging Voices and Architectural League Prize programs.
