Young Architects 19 by The Architectural League of New York; Mark Robbins (Foreword by); Anne Rieselbach (Introduction by)- Documents the important lecture and exhibition series that for more than three decades has introduced creative young architects on a national stage - Shows the breadth of contemporary practices with projects in various typologies The Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers is an annual competition, series of lectures, exhibition, and publication organized by the Architectural League of New York. For over thirty years, the League Prize has recognized outstanding and provocative work by up-and-coming North American architects and designers. The 2017 competition theme, Support, defines the term as 'an artifice that props architecture up while in turn facilitating new ideas, new forms, and new opportunities for action'. The competition asked entrants to define support's effect on architecture as tangible (how buildings stand up), financial (how buildings are funded), and theoretical (how buildings contribute to architectural discourse). The six competition winners avoided literal definitions in favor of metaphorical, historical, and methodological interpretations that have the potential to generate form. 2017 winners: Architecture Office (Jonathan Louie, Nicole McIntosh), Syracuse, New York; Michelle JaJa Chang, Houston, Texas; KEVIN HIRTH Co. (Kevin Hirth), Denver, Colorado; the Lab-lab for architecture (Mustafa Faruki), New York, New York; LANZA Atelier (Isabel Mart nez Abascal, Alessandro Arienzo), Mexico City; SPORTS (Greg Corso & Molly Hunker), Syracuse, New York. Contents: Acknowledgments; Foreword; Introduction; Biographies; Firm Sections.
