The Architect’s Newspapaerreports that the Architecture League of New York have announce their latest “emerging voices.” For the next four weeks, the recogized firms will be hosting discussion/lecture forums at the Urban Center in New York City. In no particular order, the next big things are:
- Christoff:Finio Architecture of Manhattan
- Claude Cormier Architectes Paysagistes, Montreal
- Freecell of Brooklyn (pictured)
- OBRA Architects of Manhattan
- Predock_Frane Architects of Santa Montica
- Boston based Reed Hilderbrand landscape architecture
- John Ronan Architect, Chicago
- SPF:a of Los Angeles.

And from “Eavesdrop,” the gossip section of the same paper, I was sad to learn that one-time emerging voice, Open Office, best known for its design of Dia:Beacon, is no more. Partners Lyn Rice and Galia Solomonoff have formed their own offices, Lyn Rice Architects and Galia Solomonoff Architecture, respectively.
