The Center for Architecture is presenting an exhibition featuring the winners of this year's AIANY’s New Practices New York awards which showcases the best in architectural innovations over the past year. The show will run from June 14 to September 8, 2012 and will open with an exhibition opening party on June 14, 2012 at 6:00 PM.

New Practices New York, a biennial competition since 2006, serves as the preeminent platform in New York City to recognize and promote new and innovative architecture and design firms. The juried portfolio competition is sponsored by the New Practices Committee of the AIA New York Chapter and honors firms that have utilized unique and innovative strategies, both for the projects they undertake and for the practices they have established.

Seven promising and pioneering new architecture and design firms working in New York were chosen as the New Practices New York 2012 competition winners. To qualify for the competition, practices had to be founded since 2006 and be located within the five boroughs of New York City. This is the second year that the New Practices New York competition has been open to multidisciplinary firms, widening the field of entrants to designers and young professionals in the process of becoming licensed architects. The distinguished panel of jurors selected the competition's winners from fifty-one entries.

The New Practices New York 2012 competition winners are: ABRUZZO BODZIAK ARCHITECTS; Christian Wassmann; formlessfinder; HOLLER architecture; The Living (co-founded by David Benjamin '05GSAPP and Soo-In Yang '05GSAPP); MARC FORNES & THEVERYMANY; and SLO Architecture.

 


Artist's Bio:
David Benjamin | Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation class of 2005

Pioneering architect and teacher David Benjamin tinkers at the crossroads of design and biology, exploring the possibilities of both mimicking and literally harnessing life to create dynamic, responsive structures. He has orchestrated research workshops for his graduate students and initiated interdisciplinary collaborations with scientists and software developers. David is interested in synthetic biology in particular: a branch of the field closely linked with engineering that involves piecing together bits of DNA like Legos to perform specialized functions. He speculates that research in this area will significantly impact architectural practice in the coming decades and could eventually become as historically significant as the industrial revolution was. David teaches at the Columbia GSAPP (Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation) and is co-founder of The Living, a firm dedicated to creating architecture that is both interactive and responsive to environment conditions. His innovative work includes Living Light, a permanent, illuminated pavilion in Seoul that visually reports changes in air quality, and Amphibious Architecture, a floating installation in New York's East River that enabled participants to communicate with fish and learn about water pollution.

Soo-In Yang | Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation class of 2005

Soo-in Yang co-founded The Living with David Benjamin in 2004. The architecture firm emphasizes open-source research and design, seeks collaboration both within and outside the field of architecture, and views each project as part of larger threads of experimentation and construction. Work by The Living has been exhibited at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, the Innovation Lab in Copenhagen, Southern Exposure in San Francisco, and Eyebeam in New York; has received an Architect Magazine R+D Award in 2008, the New York Prize Fellowship from the Van Alen Institute in 2007, a Young Architects Forum award from The Architectural League in 2006, three separate finalist prizes from the Metropolis Magazine Next Generation Design competition; and has appeared in many publications. Yang graduated from Yonsei University with a BE in Architectural Engineering and managed the construction of apartment complexes in Korea, and received his Master of Architecture degree from Columbia University. He currently teaches at Pratt Institute and at Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, where he is the co-directors of the Living Architecture Lab, alongside David Benjamin.
