Architecture in Media Award
New York Review of Architecture
Founded in 2019, the New York Review of Architecture provides insightful reviews of architecture in New York and around the world. The publication's approach is unique in that it avoids themed issues and instead focuses on articles that connect academia, practice, and the public. The outlet publishes a bimonthly print magazine with essays, reviews, reported work, and art, and also features a weekly email newsletter called SKYLINE, which includes a mix of reviews, news, reported dispatches, and gossip.
New Perspectives Award
A dual acronym for both ‘Work in Progress’ and ‘Women in Practice,’ WIP Collaborative is a group of independent design professionals who collaborate on research and design projects that engage communities and the public. Based in New York City, WIP was founded on feminist principles in February 2020 and supports those who reject patriarchal conventions, defining new narratives of architectural and design practice through their work. The founding members of WIP Collaborative are Abby Coover, Bryony Roberts, Elsa Ponce, Lindsay Harkema, Ryan Brooke Thomas, Sera Ghadaki, and Sonya Gimon.
