MASterworks

Selected each year by our esteemed jury, the MASterworks Awards pay tribute to projects that make a significant contribution to New York City’s built environment. From some of the city’s most iconic buildings to inconspicuous local gems, our list of past winners includes the likes of New Lab, the Fulton Center, McCarren Pool, TKTS Booth, the High Bridge, and the Museum at Eldridge Street.

2018 MASterworks Awards

This year’s winning projects were selected by an esteemed jury featuring Dan Allen (Principal, CTA Architects P.C. & President, Historic Districts Council), Amy Freitag (Executive Director, J.M. Kaplan Fund), Amit Khurana (Founding Partner, Sumaida + Khurana & MAS Board of Directors), Alexandra Lange (Architecture Critic, Curbed), and Enrique Norten (Director/Founder, TEN Arquitectos). All nominated projects must be located in New York City and have been substantially completed in 2017.
