New Practices New York 2014 will showcase the work of the six emerging architecture and design firms working in New York City.
A roundtable discussion will precede the exhibition opening. On October 1 from 5-6pm, Beatrice Galilee, curator of architecture and design at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will moderate a conversation with members of the winning firms.
The six studios, chosen as the New Practices New York 2014 competition winners, are Bittertang Farm, dlandstudio, Fake Industries Architectural Agonism, form-ula, NAMELESS Architecture, and PARA-Project.
The winners have created floor-to-ceiling installations that play with the ideas of structure, reflection, and transparency, designed specifically for the Center for Architecture's double-height storefront window. Other exhibition materials include models, project images, renderings, and videos. Pentagram/Natasha Jen, the exhibition designer, has created a custom font for New Practices New York 2014 that will be used throughout the exhibition to highlight the firm's design philosophies.
"With its fifth biennial competition and exhibition the AIA New York Chapter and the New Practices Committee continue their commitment to serving as a platform for new and innovative models of architecture practice. The winners of this year's New Practices New York competition represent the diversity and talent that makes up the community of emerging design practices in New York City," commented Christopher Leong, Assoc. AIA, and Philipp von Dalwig, Assoc. AIA, AIANY New Practices Committee Co-Chairs.
"These firms demonstrate a persistent and critical engagement with the environmental, social, and technological issues that shape our contemporary culture. We congratulate these six winners and look forward to presenting their practices in the upcoming exhibition and round table."
