On June 14, 2012, the AIA New York will showcase six of the seven winning firms from the 4th biennial New Practices New York 2012 competition, promoting new and promising firms in New York, at a party at the Center for Architecture. This year, the winning firms contended with over fifty entries to earn the designation.
The New Practices New York contest was limited to firms founded after 2006 and located within New York City’s five boroughs, but despite the restrictions, the competition was open to multidisciplinary firms, widening the variety of the work being submitted. To the design enthusiast’s delight, the exhibition will showcase work varying from architectural models to projections and installations. Along with the exhibition, a symposium will be arranged to further enlighten its visitors.
An opening party for the exhibition will take place Thursday, June 14th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Center for Architecture. A panel discussion will follow shortly after on July 16th at 6:00 p.m. with presentations from the winning firms: ABRUZZO BODZIAK ARCHITECTS, HOLLER architecture, The Living, SLO Architecture, formlessfinder and Christian Wassmann. All free and open to the public, the exhibition and scheduled symposiums will last till September 8th, 2012.
