AIA New York Chapter Announces 2014 Design Awards Winners

May 5, 2014

NEW YORK CITY, March 5, 2014 (Updated 3/24) – On March 3, 2014, twelve eminent architects, landscape architects, educators, critics, and planners convened at the Center for Architecture to select the winners of the 2014 AIA New York Chapter Design Awards. That night, they publicly announced the 35 winning projects at a symposium at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place. The conversation was moderated by Susan S. Szenasy, Hon. AIANY, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief of Metropolis.

The selected projects and the architecture firms that designed them – many of whom were on hand for the program – represent the exceptional work by AIA New York Chapter members and other architects practicing in New York City in four categories: Architecture, Interiors, Projects, and Urban Design. There was great variety in the winners, which ranged from small installations to large projects.

According to AIANY Executive Director Rick Bell, FAIA, “Among the winners were well-established stalwart firms, such as Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects and many newer and emerging firms starting to make an impact on New York’s skyline, including SLO Architecture, Work Architecture Company, and Slade Architecture.”

Each winning project, granted either an “Honor” or “Merit” award, was chosen for its design quality, response to context and community, program resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness, and technique. Submissions had to be completed by AIANY members, architects/designers practicing in New York, or be New York projects designed by architects/designers based elsewhere. There were 384 entries in four categories, including 178 submissions in the Architecture category alone.

“The jury was excellent and devoted to selecting projects that met the high standards established by the Chapter,” said Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, 2014 AIANY President. “Projects demonstrated the span and vitality of the profession as it successfully engages the challenges of our time.”

Susan S. Szenasy, Hon. AIANY, was “impressed by the jury that AIA New York attracted and the judges’ commitment to elevate their profession through honest discourse, as well as participating in awards programs like the ones they were judging.” The moderated discussion that followed the announcements touched upon the state of architecture in New York City and the state of architectural competitions, among other topics.

The juries conferred 35 awards, including five Honor Awards in Architecture, two in Interiors, four in Projects, and two in Urban Design. The jurors and full list of winners follows.
