New York Awards Focus on Local and Developing-World Projects

New York has been especially proficient at shipping its design expertise to the far corners of the developing world this year, and helping to spruce up its local architecture scene as well. The Honor Awards category for this year’s AIA New York awards (just the top 13 out of a total of 42 recognized projects) are in Dubai, China, and South Korea, as well as Brooklyn, Central Park West, and Midtown.
