Call for Submissions
Architects, landscape architects, engineers, and other designers are invited to submit projects to the Architectural League’s New York Designs series. Projects of all types at any scale, either built (completed within one year of submission) or under construction in New York City, are welcome. Quality is the sole criterion for selection.

New York Designs recognizes accomplished built work in New York City. If your project is selected, League staff will work with you to develop an appropriate presentation, most often taking the format of an on-site tour or brief lecture. We invite designers to include project collaborators, such as consultants, contractors, engineers, clients, and others in the project presentation. Submission assumes the accessibility of the space by a group of 20-30 people and availability of the designer to take part in a New York-based program. Travel monies will not be provided.

Submission deadlines
New York Designs is an ongoing project recognition series. You may submit a project at any time.

Submission requirements
Submissions are digital. Please submit a PDF of no more than four pages that includes project images, a written statement not to exceed 250 words, and a brief project description and timeline.

Submissions should be sent to Nick Anderson at anderson@archleague.org. For more information, call 212.753.1722 x13.

League programs are made possible, in part, by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
