HB:BX was an open ideas competition to design an arts center that culturally reinforces the physical connection between the High Bridge communities of Manhattan and the Bronx. This competition was a forum to explore the urban and community improvement opportunities that may come with the achievement of reopening the historic High Bridge. Working in cooperation with the arts organizations Artists Unite and the Bronx Museum of the Arts, ENYA meant to draw awareness to the current efforts to restore and reopen a historic, and architecturally significant piece of New York infrastructure.. ENYA challenged designers to explore how disused structures can be reprogrammed into elements of a vibrant urban cultural center. Entrants were also challenged to rethink the relationship between existing infrastructure (aqueduct, railway, and highway) and the contemporary urban context. These issues, universally relevant to any growing city, took on a more site-specific nature when considering the importance of the High Bridge and the topographic challenges posed by the steep riverbanks of the Harlem River. Also defining this competition were the unique clients who asked entrants to reconsider architecture’s role in the creation, display, and experience of viewing art in one of the world’s most culturally vibrant cities.

AIA National defines membership in young architects groups as open to «all professionals ten years or less from licensure.» However, ENYA is an equal-opportunity committee and welcomes participation from anyone willing to promote the positive development of the profession and its practitioners. ENYA strives to meet all skill levels, scholastic backgrounds and professional interests, and hosts programs of general interest to all architects. In this way, ENYA will continue to educate, expand and improve the understanding and interpretation of New York City’s architectural environment with a focus on topics of interest to young architects.
Founded in 1857, the AIA New York Chapter is the oldest and largest chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The Chapter’s members include almost 5,000 practicing architects, allied professionals, students, and public members interested in architecture and design.
