2023 MASterworks Awards Ceremony


View a video of the event on the MAS YouTube Channel.

On Wednesday, November 8th from 6-8 PM, we’ll gather at AIA’s Center for Architecture to celebrate our 2023 MASterworks Design Awards Honorees. From a hub for artistic development housed in an old foundry, to an innovative care center serving our city’s animals, we are honored to be recognizing some of New York City’s best projects from 2022 with MASterworks Awards.

About the Awards
The winners of the 2023 MASterworks Awards were nominated by the very New Yorkers who know their own neighborhoods best and selected by an esteemed jury of architects, designers, preservationists, scholars, and critics. Each project plays a valuable role in improving the city’s built environment, adding to all the ways that make our city such a magical place.
