AIA New York Announces 2023 Design Awards Recipients

January 10, 2023

NEW YORK CITY, January 10, 2023 – On Monday, January 9, 2023, a jury of independent architects, educators, and planners from outside New York City convened to select the winners of the 2023 AIA New York Design Awards. Later that evening, the jurors publicly announced the 18 winning projects at a symposium at the Center for Architecture.

The 18 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. 11 of the 18 winners are projects located in New York State. This year, only two of the winning projects were located internationally, in the countries of Lebanon and Canada.

Honors and Awards Luncheon
Winning projects will be recognized at the Honors and Awards Luncheon, scheduled for Thursday, April 20, at Cipriani Wall Street.

Exhibition at the Center for Architecture
The Center for Architecture will host an exhibition of the winning projects, opening Thursday, May 4, 2023, at 6:00 pm, and on view through September 2, 2023.
