Editor’s Note

In this last issue of 2013, the AIA New York Chapter would like to wish you all the best in 2014, and thank you for your continued support and readership. We’re looking forward to kicking off the New Year with our first issue on 01.08.14. Stay tuned!

Please note that the Center for Architecture office and gallery will be closed on Wednesday, 12.25.13; Tuesday, 12.31.13, and Wednesday 01.01.14. The gallery will operate on reduced holiday hours, from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM on Thursday, 12.26.13; Friday, 12.27.13; and Monday, 12.30.13.

I’d also like to remind all emerging and innovative firms submit entries to the New Practices New York Competition and the Emerging New York Architects Committee’s Queensway Connection: Elevating the Public Realm Competition. The submission deadline for both is 01.06.14.

And in a bit of Chapter news, congratulations to AIANY Executive Director Rick Bell, FAIA, for receiving the AIA 2014 Edward C. Kemper Award in recognition of his extraordinary service to the Chapter and New York City, and his commitment to sustainable design and public health!

Happy holidays!
