New Practices New York, a biennial competition since 2006, serves as New York City’s preeminent platform to recognize and promote new and innovative architecture and design firms.

For this year’s New Practices New York competition, we are looking for firms that choose not to remain on the margins but rather actively and constructively engage their city, their society, and their context. We seek firms that offer new modes of thinking, create opportunities for thoughtful architecture, and take agency as designers in NYC. How are you shaping your practice to have consequence? How is your practice shaping and transforming the built environment and its future? How does your work resonate beyond the boundaries of the profession? How do you choose to define your role and in what context?

Six promising and pioneering firms will be chosen and exhibited as the New Practices New York 2018 competition winners. 


  • Beatrice Galilee, Daniel Brodsky Associate Curator of Architecture and Design, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • Dan Howarth, US Editor, Dezeen
  • Jeffrey Inaba, Principal, Inaba Williams 
  • Andrés Jaque, Founder, Office for Political Innovation 
  • Hilary Sample, AIA, Principal and Co-founder, MOS Architects
  • Rosalyne Shieh, AIA, Partner, Schaum/Shieh
