Six emerging architecture practices with offices in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada have been announced as the winners of this year's Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers. Since 1981, the program aims to promote excellence among early-career architects and designers who graduated within the past ten years.
Under the 2021 competition theme of "Housekeeping," the brief asked entrants to contemplate how "stay-at-home orders have prompted many of us to see our domestic settings anew, and to consider the various ways in which we 'keep house.'"
The jury included Tatiana Bilbao, Peggy Deamer, Fritz Haeg, and Victor J. Jones in addition to a committee of past winners: Ivi Diamantopoulou, Cyrus Peñarroyo, and Alison Von Glinow.
