Any housing type anywhere in the world may be submitted if the architect/firm currently resides in New England or New York City. Any architect anywhere in the world may submit projects located in New England or New York City.

The sole judging criterion is design excellence. The jury is encouraged to determine the extent to which design excellence is defined by aesthetic, functional, contextual, sustainable, social or other characteristics such as “livability.” The jury may elect to honor projects by building type or other categories, or may choose to make no such distinctions.

This program is co-sponsored by the AIANY Housing Committee.
