Curbed has been sifting through hundreds of nominations over the past few months in search of talented young architects, interior designers and developers for the inaugural class of Young Guns.
“These are the junior statesmen of the design world who have already distinguished themselves in a notable way, whether it's by cutting their teeth in old-school decorating houses before founding a modern-day firm deeply rooted in those traditions, designing an innovative model for housing in Tijuana, overseeing the interiors of Brooklyn's new Barclays Center, creating an online platform that lets the public invest in unbuilt developments in their community, or working to make a Holocaust museum as thoughtful as it is beautiful,” wrote a Curbed editor.
