AIA New York Announces 2022 Design Awards Recipients

January 11, 2022

NEW YORK CITY, January 11, 2022 – On Monday, January 10, 2022, a jury of independent architects, educators, and planners from outside New York City convened remotely to select the winners of the 2022 AIA New York Design Awards. Later that evening, the jurors publicly announced the 25 winning projects at an online symposium.

The 25 selected projects and the architecture firms that designed them represent the exceptional work by AIA New York members and architects practicing in New York City. Awards were conferred in four categories: Architecture, Interiors, Projects, and Urban Design.

Each winning project, granted either an “Honor”, “Merit”, or “Citation”, was chosen for its design quality, response to its context and community, program resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness, and technique. Submitted projects had to be completed by AIANY members or architects/designers practicing in New York, or be New York projects designed by architects/designers based elsewhere. The winners range from temporary installations and exhibitions to large-scale urban interventions. 15 of the 25 winners are projects located in New York State. 6 of the winning projects are located internationally, in the countries of China, Germany, Haiti, India, and Taiwan.

Honors and Awards Luncheon
Winning projects will be recognized at the Honors and Awards Luncheon, scheduled for Thursday, April 28, at Cipriani Wall Street.
