The Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers is an annual competition, series of lectures, exhibition, and publication organized by The Architectural League of New York. For more than thirty years, the League Prize has recognized outstanding and provocative work by up-and-coming North American architects and designers. The 2018 competition theme, Objective, suggested that the topic "implies an action" and that "how we act, what our actions achieve, and how we argue for a design speak to our values as a discipline and as a society." The winners' work exemplifies the diverse ways young architects and designers are pursuing multiple "objectives," from projects that insightfully address social, economic, and political agendas to material and structural experimentation that inspires innovative design at every scale. Young Architects 20: Objective presents the work of the six winners of the 2018 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers competition.
