The renderings and images reflect the theme of this year’s prize, No Precedent. League committee members and competition jurors valued the competition entries based on a perception of the career of a young architect. According to the League’s announcement, jurors sought “ideas, works, and methodologies that are unfounded, ungrounded, and suspect…the things no one has done before, and that one has little experience with.” The winners reflected the notion of their burgeoning careers by displaying work that is, “suggestive, speculative, and on the brink.”
