“I was extremely impressed by the diversity of the work of this year's winners across project type and site,” said juror Jane Smith, AIA, IIDA, ASID, AIANY Vice President for Professional Development. “Common to all was a strong commitment to research and experimentation in the areas of environment, materials, form and social engagement. The jury was mutually drawn to work that was comparatively modest in scale, formed with an elegant simplicity and rich with innovative uses for natural and hand crafted materials.”

New Practices New York 2016 is a preeminent platform in New York City for recognizing and promoting young architecture and design firms. To qualify for the competition, practices had to be founded since 2006 and be located within the five boroughs of New York City. The competition was open to multidisciplinary firms, widening the field of entrants to designers and young professionals currently in the process of becoming licensed architects.
