The AIA New York chapter held its annual awards ceremony today at Cipriani Wall Street, an elegant banquet hall within a Greek Revival landmark that once housed the New York Stock Exchange. The spirited lunchtime event drew roughly 800 attendees. Awards were bestowed in four categories: architecture, interiors, unbuilt, and urban design. The chapter also presented three additional accolades: the Medal of Honor, which went to Ennead; the Award of Merit, given to Alexander Garvin; and the Stephen A. Kliment Oculus Award, conferred on Paul Goldberger.
All of the winning projects will be on view at the Center for Architecture from April 19 to May 31. Moreover, the projects will be discussed pecha kucha-style during a May 14 panel featuring: Michael Arad, of Handel Architects; Frederic Schwartz, of Frederic Schwartz Architects; Frank Mahan, of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; Daniel Gallagher, of NADAAA; Ilias Papageorgiou, of SO-IL; David Eugin Moon, of NHDM; and William Kenworthey, of Cooper, Robertson & Partners. Laura Raskin, assistant editor at Architectural Record, will moderate.
