In alignment with 2024 AIANY President Greg Switzer’s theme of “Belonging and Beyond,” this 14th edition of Speed Presentations calls for project entries that make significant contributions to the well-being of communities and the individuals within them through the transformative power of design.

Projects of all types and scales, whether public or private, are eligible. Examples include, but are not limited to, housing, places of learning, work environments, hospitals, and community centers. Emphasis should be given to the design of interior spaces.

Selected entrants will be invited to present their work at an in-person presentation on April 9th at De Padova’s showroom in SoHo. Situated in one of the most important areas of the Big Apple, the De Padova showroom embodies Made in Italy style for luxury residences in New York and serves as a meeting place where design enthusiasts from around the world can gather.


Entries must be submitted by an AIA member who is affiliated with a firm based in New York City. Projects may be located outside of New York, and multiple projects may be submitted. All work should be complete (or nearing completion) and no more than five years old.

No fee is required for entry.

Submission Requirements

A complete entry asks applicants to provide the following items:

Project Description: Provide context for the submitted project(s). How does it engage the theme of “Belonging and Beyond?”
