NYCxDESIGN Architecture Graduates Showcase 2020

The NYCxDESIGN Architecture Graduates Showcase 2020 celebrates the year’s best architecture projects from five of New York City’s top professional schools. Each school—The Cooper Union, Columbia University GSAPP, Parsons The New School, Pratt Institute School of Architecture, City College/Spitzer School of Architecture—convened independent juries and selected the two most compelling, provocative, and probing projects of the year to represent their programs. Congratulations to all the winning architecture graduates and their dedicated studio professors!

Enjoy the online gallery for a “first look” at each design and follow the links to see the full projects. We think you’ll agree: the next generation of architects is off to a very strong start.
