MADE IN NEW YORK Submissions Now Open
Registration and submissions are now open for AIANY’s annual subway show, “MADE IN NEW YORK.” Building on the huge success of last year’s exhibition, “New York Now,” this exhibition will also showcase AIANY members’ work. This year, the Chapter is soliciting member designs of projects built around the globe. The worldwide focus will show the diversity of work being generated in NYC, and reinforce NYC as a truly global city. The exhibition will open on 10.06.10, during AIANY’s Architecture Week, and be on view for a month. Read more here.
Read the call for entries here. Submissions are open until 08.18.10. The cost per submission is $300, and members are able to submit up to four projects, (each $300). This price helps cover the costs of commissioning the registration software, exhibition design, printing, and renting all the advertising space (“station domination”) in the West Fourth Street Station.
New Design Fellow for Haiti
Last week, the AIA, the U.S. Green Building Council, and Architecture for Humanity (AFH) announced that Stacey McMahan, AIA, LEED AP, has been named the organizations’ Architecture for Humanity Sustainable Design Fellow for Haiti. Working from AFH’s Rebuilding Center in Port-au-Prince, McMahan will work on sustainable rebuilding efforts. Currently, McMahan is a partner/principal at Koch Hazard Architects in Sioux Falls, SD, where she is the Green Studio Director. Her position is a yearlong appointment, and she will focus on helping Haitian communities use safe and sustainable construction methods to build stronger, more sustainable buildings for the future of Haiti.
In a release issued by AIA National, AIA President George Miller, FAIA, said, “Stacey brings the best the architecture profession has to offer to this new assignment. Her talent, skill, and compassion — combined with her intense dedication to the design process — will help the people of Haiti rebuild their nation in a way that prevents a tragedy of this magnitude from ever happening again.”
