On View: Selections from AIA NY’s Emerging Architects Competition

First Pize Winner- The Harlem Edge
First Prize: Sym-bio-pia by Ting Chin and Yan Wang

Winners and selected entries of The Harlem Edge design challenge sponsored by the Emerging New York Architects (ENYA) Committee of the AIA NY Chapter are now on view at the Center for Architecture in New York. The biennial design ideas competition now in its fifth year asked emerging professionals including students with less than ten years experience to propose creative solutions for a multi modal transit hub and food and nutrition education center at a site in Harlem on West 135th street and the Hudson River, which formerly served as a marine transfer station. Nourishing USA, a non-profit community food program that serves communities nationwide and endeavors to reverse the strong correlation between low income and poor dietary health, served as the client.  The exhibition runs from July-October 2012 at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, New York, NY.
