The 2016 Architectural League of New York’s League Prize for Young Architects + Designers focused on the theme of (im)permanence. As the League’s website says, this year’s competition “asks how time affects architecture’s assertion of style, methods of assembly, and relationship to program.” The exhibition, open until July 30, showcases the drawings, models, and research of the winners at the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries at Parsons School of Design at The New School.

As The Architect’s Newspaper reported in May, this year’s diverse group included:

Rania Ghosn and El Hadi Jazairy, DESIGN EARTH, Cambridge, MA and Ann Arbor, MI
Juan Alfonso Garduño Jardón, G3 Arquitectos, Querétaro, Mexico
Neyran Turan and Mete Sonmez, NEMESTUDIO, San Francisco, CA
Neeraj Bhatia, The Open Workshop, San Francisco, CA
Hubert Pelletier and Yves de Fontenay, Pelletier de Fontenay, Montreal, Canada
Yasmin Vobis and Aaron Forrest, Ultramoderne, Providence, RI

Three of the winners will also discuss their responses to the theme of (im)permanence in a June 30 lecture; the event can also be streamed live through the Architectural League of New York.

The 2016 League Prize was organized by the Architectural League and its Young Architects + Designers Committee.
