Next year will be the 30th Anniversary of the Architectural League’s Emerging Voices awards. The Architect’s Newspaper has only been covering it for seven years, but in that time we have come to see our annual feature profiling the eight winners as an outstanding opportunity to take the measure of these select practitioners, their focus, explorations, and goals, as they pass a key stage in their development. That threshold when they have achieved a degree of recognition but still respond to small projects with pure excitement about the opportunities to try something new is always revealing. This year, the Emerging Voices class of 2011 offers some especially polished work at a variety of scales, and with a rich diversity of expression, from politically savvy urban conceptualization to art-quality fabrication. As Anne Rieselbach, program director of the series, said, “We found this group had a real joy in exploring different modes and materials. Compared with years past, there was more sense of place and nothing generic.”

In short, pay attention now, to understand what we’ll see built tomorrow.
