Welcome AIA New York State Emerging Professionals
The mission of the AIA New York State Emerging Professionals is “to provide an open forum for professionals at the early stages of their careers to engage and connect through networking, leadership, and professional development programs.”
We are committed to furthering the professional development of all Associate members, students, and architects licensed under 10 years, through fellowship, education and supportive networking. Providing support to aspiring architects participating in NCARB’s Intern Development Program (IDP) and those working towards licensure, and all architecture graduates in alternative career paths. Our mission is to create community, support career development and foster the next generations of leaders in our profession by collaborating with all of the local AIA NY chapters.
AIA NYS EP and it’s local chapter components are interested in engaging in community projects where our members can use their professional skills to serve the community.
The AIANYS Student Award Program, sponsored in part by AIA’s Component Scholarship Grant, was established in 2007 to recognize design excellence in our next generation of architecture practitioners. This program serves as a way of engaging and recognizing students who will soon be emerging professionals in design, giving the opportunity to interact, share ideas and concepts with professionals, to advance our every evolving profession.
This year’s theme was “Community Engagement & Social Impact.”
We are proud to announce the winning students and projects.
Marina Santos of the City College Spitzer School of Architecture was awarded for her work on her project “REACH.”
Nathaniel Banks and Yidian Liu of Syracuse University were awarded for their project “Connective Corridor: The Revival of Beijing Siheyuan.”
This scholarship is intended to recognize Associate AIA members in New York State who have made significant contributions at an early stage in their careers to the profession and to encourage their pursuit of licensure. It covers the cost of one ARE Exam.
The 2016 Scholarship was awarded Nicole Gangidino, Assoc. AIA with the Brooklyn Chapter.
Congratulations to each of our winners!
