Registration is now open for New Practices New York, the biennial juried competition organized by the New Practices Committee of the AIA New York chapter and sponsored by Cosentino.

The contest is seeking firms with “unique and innovative strategies in both projects and practices.” It is open to architecture and design firms founded since 2006 and located within NYC’s five boroughs. Firms are asked to submit a practice narrative as well as a mini portfolio of built, unbuilt, and/or theoretical work.

The theme for this year is “Prospect,” which asks the following questions: “How are new firms shaping their practice around the prospect of the future? What are the most important challenges they see facing the city over the next three months, and in 30 years? What will they focus on? Where are they headed? How will they thrive?”

The jury is composed of William Menking, editor-in-chief, The Architect's Newspaper; Julian Rose, principal, Formlessfinder; Jane Smith, AIA, IIDA, ASID, partner, SpacesmithMartino Stierli, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at MOMA; and Ada Tolla, partner, LOT-EK.

The New Practices New York Award also includes:
• A stipend for an installation and exhibition at the Center for Architecture
• Media exposure through media partner The Architect’s Newspaper
• The opportunity to participate in promotional symposia and lectures at the Cosentino City Manhattan showroom
• A trip to Spain with competition underwriter Cosentino for an architectural tour of its global headquarters and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities (one representative per firm)
• A one-year membership in the AIA New York Chapter
• Access to the AIANY New Practices Committee, a successful and engaging platform for young practices in New York
