The League Prize is an annual competition that has been organized by The Architectural League since 1981. Open to designers ten years or less out of school, it draws entrants from around North America.
The 2023 competition theme, Uncomfortable, asked entrants to examine their discomforts. Composed by the 2023 Young Architects + Designers Committee, the theme statement invited “practices to demonstrate how they find comfort within the unconventional, discover opportunity within crisis, and use the Uncomfortable as a design tool.”
The first evening of lectures by the winners of the 2023 League Prize will feature Miles Gertler of Common Accounts and Sarah Aziz and Lindsey Krug.
The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion and audience Q&A with 2023 Young Architects + Designers Committee member Jose Amozurrutia. Amozurrutia is a founding principal of TO and teaches at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
The Architectural League of New York nurtures excellence in architecture, design, and urbanism, and stimulates thinking, debate, and action on the critical design and building issues of our time. As a vital, independent forum for architecture and its allied disciplines, the League helps create a more beautiful, vibrant, innovative, and sustainable future.
