The Architectural League of New York announced the winners of its annual Emerging Voices Recognition Program, which honors eight rising practitioners selected in an invited portfolio competition. The program recognizes firms and individuals hailing from all over North America that impact the disciplines of architecture, landscape design, and urbanism.
According to a press release by the Architectural League, "This year, in particular, saw firms entrepreneurial in spirit, pursuing alternate forms of practice, often writing their own programs or serving as their own clients."
The 2014 Emerging Voices:
Geoff di Girolamo, Assoc. AIA; James Lord, and Roderick Wyllie of Surfacedesign in San Francisco
Basar Girit, Aleksey Lukyanov-Cherny, Wes Rozen, and Bradley Samuels of SITU Studio in New York
Joyce Hwang of Ants of the Prairie in Buffalo, N.Y.
Salvador Macías Corona and Magui Peredo Arenas of Estudio Macías Peredo in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello of Rael San Fratello in Oakland, Calif.
Mauricio Rocha Iturbide and Gabriela Carrillo Valadez of TALLER| MauricioRocha+GabrielaCarrillo| in Mexico City
Winners will present lectures at the Scholastic Auditorium in New York this March. Additionally, in April, the League will present digital features on each of the eight firms, exploring their portfolio and firm “voice” through interviews, video, and documentation of their work.
This year’s jury included Fred Bernstein; Paul Lewis, AIA; Kate Orff; Thomas Phifer, FAIA; Annabelle Selldorf, FAIA; and Adam Yarinsky, FAIA. Emerging Voices is organized by League Program Director Anne Rieselbach.
