Young Architects 16 Overlay: The Architectural League of New York

Overlay joins The Architectural League of New York’s series of publications showcasing the winners of their annual Architectural League Prize. Established in 1981, the Architectural League Prize is an annual competition, series of lectures, exhibition, and publication identifying the best emerging talent in architecture and design. 

The theme for this year, Overlay, asked entrants to consider how interactive, incremental processes inform and direct their work. Through this theme, the idea was to present how the techniques developed are activated over time with layered meaning to push architectural concepts. Entries showcased a range of approaches including written, researched, and graphically rich interpretations to projects depicting the literal mapping of effects upon a surface. 

The book features works by: Young & Ayata, The LADG, SIFT Studio, Norman Kelley, Jenny Sabin Studio, Geoffrey von Oeyen Design
