New Practices New York, a biennial competition since 2006, serves as the preeminent platform in NYC to recognize and promote new and innovative architecture and design firms. The juried portfolio competition is sponsored by the New Practices Committee of the AIANY and honors firms that have utilized unique and innovative strategies, both for the projects they undertake and for the practices they have established.
The Harlem Edge exhibition presents entries to the latest ideas competition developed by the Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) committee. The 2012 competition focuses on the redevelopment of the West 135th Street marine transfer station, which establishes a link from the water to the surrounding community.
Tours will be led by Center for Architecture Foundation educators and will include refreshments.
