New Practices

AIA Center for Architecture, New York, Completed 2016

As part of the New Practices Exhibition, Young Projects' developed a collection of representational experiments for the three structures comprising the Retreat at Playa Grande in the Dominican Republic - the Main House, Beach Spa, and Guest House.

The juried portfolio competition is sponsored by the New Practices Committee of the AIA New York Chapter and honors firms that have utilized unique and innovative strategies, both for the projects they undertake and for the practices they have established. 2016 marks the 10th anniversary of the New Practices Committee and the New Practices New York competition.
