New York City's Van Alen Institute have announced four new members—Haptic Architects, Mecanoo, Studio Libeskind, and Trahan Architects—to their International Council, a platform for exchange among leading architects, designers, developers, and planners. Furthermore, Jing Liu (SO –IL), Kim Herforth Nielsen (3XN), and Raymond Quinn (Arup) have joined its board of trustees to help guide the organisation's cross-disciplinary research, provocative public programs, and design competitions.

"We are honored to welcome Jing, Kim, and Ray and the new International Council firms to Van Alen, and we look forward to their insight and creativity," said Stephen Cassell, Chair of Van Alen’s Board of Trustees and principal of Architecture Research Office. "It is an auspicious moment to bring new voices and skills into our conversations about the pressing challenges and exciting opportunities facing cities. Each of these new members of Van Alen’s circle has deep expertise in the fields of design and urbanism that will guide Van Alen Institute in innovative directions," said David van der Leer, Van Alen Institute Executive Director.
