The winners of the 2024 AIA New York Design Awards have been revealed, with 13 of the 22 winning projects located in New York. Each submitted project had to be completed by an AIANY member, an architect or designer practicing in NY, or be a NY project designed by an architect or designer from elsewhere. The winning projects range from temporary installations and exhibitions to large-scale urban interventions and are awarded in four categories, including Architecture, Interiors, Projects, and Urban Design.

The winning projects were granted either an “Honor,” “Merit,” or “Citation” and chosen for their design quality, response to the surrounding context and community, resolution, innovation, thoughtfulness, and technique. The judges selected from nearly 200 entries before settling on 22 award winners.

Here are the statistics for this year’s awards:

Architecture: 14 total (4 honors; 7 merits; 3 citations)
Interiors: 3 total (1 honor; 2 merits)
Projects: 4 total (2 honors; 2 citations)
Urban design: 1 total (1 merit)

A common theme among the winning designs was their consideration of details on a human scale and their ability to improve the experience of the built environment, regardless of their scale. Two projects that exemplified these characteristics were Interboro’s The Refreshing Waters, a temporary cooling station in the Hunts Point-Longwood neighborhood of the Bronx, and HNTB’s new benches at Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal C.

“We loved projects like The Refreshing Waters and the benches at Newark as you have to see them for what they are. Rather than assessing them in relation to larger projects, you must think of them as making people’s lives better. We think that is the way that architecture and interior design should go,” Fuensanta Nieto, a juror and founder of Nieto Sobejano Architectos, said.
