An intergenerational roundtable discussion with past Architectural League Prize winners from 1985-2016 will address key aspects of over 30 years of pedagogy, theory, and practice.
The discussion, moderated by League program director Anne Rieselbach, will center both on the annual themes that have shaped the League’s competition for young architects and designers as well as broader changes in the design profession.
It will encompass issues from material and digital experimentation and the role of teaching and academia to aspects of realizing and building a practice.
The 12 participants, many of whom teach at CCA, UC Berkeley, and other schools, are principals of diverse Bay Area practices whose work includes testing new design concepts, materials, and methodologies as well as investigating and reshaping the urban landscape.

Since 1981, the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers (formerly the Young Architects Forum) has identified innovative and talented members of the profession 10 years or fewer out of graduate or undergraduate school.

The list of over two hundred past competition-winning individuals and teams represents some of today’s leading architects and designers. Many also have earned positions of leadership in schools of architecture, or have shaped the architectural landscape through their guiding role in public agencies.
