Garrett Ricciardi Formlessfinder Honored with 2020 Architecture League Prize

May 8, 2020

Congratulations to faculty member Garrett Ricciardi whose office Formlessfinder was recently honored with a 2020 Architectural League Prize!

Established in 1981 to recognize exemplary and provocative work by young practitioners, The Architectural League Prize is an annual competition, lecture series, and exhibition organized by The Architectural League and its Young Architects + Designer's Committee. This year's Committee included recent League Prize winners Kutan Ayata, Mira Henry, and Kevin Hirth. The jury included the Committee in addition to Lucia Allais, Paul Lewis, Anna Puigjaner, and Nanako Umemoto.

In a time of political and social precariousness when all cultural value sets seem publicly permissible, this year’s competition asked entrants to consider how notions of value operate in their work. How are values mediated by the processes of design? What are the discursive contexts, forms of representation, and/or spaces of action in which these values manifest themselves?

Given the constraints of social engagement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s League Prize program will be presented entirely online:
