Van Alen Institute
Van Alen Institute is a New York City-based independent nonprofit architectural organization, dedicated to improving design in the public realm. It was founded in 1894 as the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects. In 1995, the institute was named in honor of William Van Alen, architect of the Chrysler Building and recipient of the institute's 1908-1909 Paris Prize.
Van Alen Institute has supported architects, urban thinkers, designers and scholars through design competitions, fellowships, awards and public programs. Also, it has fostered dialogue about architecture as a creative practice.
Van Alen Institute initiatives include Parks for the People and Ground/Work: A Design Competition for Van Alen Institute's New Street-Level Space. The Institute is also a partner in Rebuild by Design and Changing Course: Navigating the Future of the Lower Mississippi River Delta.
Van Alen Institute is located at 30 West 22nd Street in the Flatiron District of New York City.
