The annual program recognizes a project's “design quality, response to its context and community, program resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness, and technique.” Selected from a pool of 379 entries, the 35 winners were split across four categories: 14 in Architecture, nine in Interiors, eight in Projects, and four in Urban Design. Twenty-two of the 35 are in New York City.
The winning projects will be recognized at the Honors and Awards Luncheon on April 21 at Cipriani Wall Street. Following the ceremony, the projects will be exhibited in the 2017 AIANY Design Awards exhibition at the Center for Architecture through May 6.
