The Architectural League of New York announced the winners of its thirty-fifth annual award Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers. First released in 1981 and selected by a committee of former recipients and Anne Rieselbach, Director of the League Program, the Architectural League Prize is one of the most prestigious awards aimed at young architects, recognizing their talents and innovative ideas. The theme of this year's contest, "(im) permanence", proposes a reflection on how time works in the architectural style, mounting media and its relationship with the program that ultimately change the architecture of expectations in an "environment impermanent".
