Loud & Clear: The 2013 Emerging Voices
Last week the Architectural League of New York
announced the winners of its annual Emerging Voices program. Each year the League awards talent that displays a unique design voice with strong potential to influence the fields of architecture, landscape design, and urbanism. These eight firms’ portfolios passed the muster of a prestigious jury including the likes of Henry Cobb, Annabelle Selldorf, and Adam Yarinsky, and they will now join the ranks of past honorees including Steven Holl, Tod Williams, Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi, Deborah Berke, Michael Maltzan, and SHoP Architects.
The 2013 Emerging Voices include: Andy Cao and Xavier Perrot, cao | perrot Studio; Jules Dingle, Jeff Goldstein, Mark Sanderson, and Jamie Unkefer, DIGSAU; Susannah Drake, dlandstudio; Jorge Gracia, graciastudio; Sierra Bainbridge, Michael Murphy, Alan Ricks, and David Saladnik, MASS Design Group; Luke Ogrydziak and Zoë Prillinger, Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects; Carlos Bedoya, Wonne Ickx, Victor Jaime, and Abel Perles, PRODUCTORA; and Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu, SO-IL.
Architecture fans in New York will have the opportunity to hear each Emerging Voice in person at a lecture series this March at the Scholastic Auditorium in Soho. More information on the lectures and tickets can be found here.

Los Angeles- and Paris-based cao | perrot Studio brings an artistic bent to landscaping and creates “hybrid environments…place[s] for dreaming.” For many, it doesn’t get dreamier than a cloud of 10,000 genuine Swarovski Elements water-drop crystals floating overhead. Supported by a structure of hand-sculpted wire mesh, the crystals reflect in the pool below for added shimmer. Cao Cloud Terrace, Dumbarton Oaks, Washington, D.C. Photo by: Stephen Jerrome.
