"The Architectural League of New York is an independent forum for creative and intellectual work in architecture, urbanism, and related disciplines. The League promotes excellence and innovation in architecture and urbanism by furthering the education of architects and designers, and by communicating to a broad audience the importance of architecture in public life. Through its lectures, exhibitions, and other programs, the League creates a stimulating venue for contemporary practice and ideas, supports the work of talented young architects, explores new approaches to problems in the built environment, and fosters community for dialogue and debate. All of the League’s work is shaped by its commitment to interdisciplinary, intergenerational, and international exchange, and by its concern for the quality of architecture and landscape as critical components of a vibrant and sustainable culture.
