Call for Proposals for American Roundtable — a new League initiative to bring together on-the-ground perspectives on the condition of American communities, and what they need to thrive going forward.

The Architectural League of NY is a non-profit cultural organization focused on nurturing excellence in architecture, design, and urbanism by providing platforms and opportunities to explore solutions to problems in the built environment.

American Roundtable will commission up to ten editors to prepare reports on communities from across the United States, with an emphasis on small cities, towns, and rural areas. We are striving for both geographic diversity and diversity in terms of the types of communities represented.

The editor, or at least one member of an editorial team, must have a design background (architect, planner, architectural historian, landscape architect, urbanist, etc). These editors will in turn commission contributors from various outlooks and expertise to respond to a set of topics (public space, health, work and economy, infrastructure, and environment), producing features that cover a range of perspectives in diverse media formats.

The reports will be published online and as a series of standard format print publications in September 2020. Commissioned teams will be awarded $10,000 to support their work.

Call for Proposals Submission Deadline: February 18, 2020
