Young Architects 22: Value features work by the winners of the 2020 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects + Designers. The competition theme examined the meanings of value in contemporary architecture — a concept that spans “numbers, colours, measurement, worth, and ethics,” in the words of the theme statement. From an open-source robotics laboratory producing new architectural forms and processes to a series of community gardens built from salvaged architectural models, the projects and practices featured in this volume represent a wide breadth of responses to the competition theme, refining and expanding the notion of value in contemporary design practice.
