A panel discussion exploring the 2010 New Practices exhibition, moderated by Galia Solomonoff.
New Practices New York 2010 is the third juried portfolio competition and exhibition in a new biennial tradition sponsored by the New Practices Committee of the AIA New York Chapter. It serves as a platform for recognizing and promoting new, innovative and emerging architectural and design firms within New York City that have undertaken unique and commendable strategies - both in the projects they undertake and the practices they have established. Distinguishing this award from others given to new and young practices is the attention focused on how the winning firms' practices have been uniquely shaped to better facilitate and exploit the type of projects that are undertaken.
For the first time in the competition's history, the qualification for entry (firm must be located within the five boroughs and must be five-years-old or less) has been expanded to include firms without a registered architect.
From the 65 submitted portfolios, jury members Toshiko Mori, FAIA (Toshiko Mori Architect), Joe MacDonald, Assoc. AIA (Urban A&O), William Menking (The Architect's Newspaper), Guy Nordenson (Guy Nordenson and Associates) and Galia Solomonoff, AIA (Solomonoff Architecture Studio) selected 7 firms who embody the spirit of the New Practices New York competition:
