your patience has been really appreciated and by the end of this week we hope to post an announcement of finalists and honorable mentions.
the challenges presented in the call-out have certainly been met …. the range of solutions, approaches and creative intent in the proposals has made for an intense and deliberative jury review.
selecting a studio design that addresses AS society program needs for both residency and farm operations within an environmentally dynamic region(ny city watershed, working landscapes,catskill mountains) poses a unique set of issues to consider. yes, the amount of time for review may appear to be excessive but please know, this time has been necessary and useful in order to benefit the natural environment, design integrity and overall success of this project.
the built studios are sure to become expressions of a unique convergence of architecture, agriculture and new media.
