Denise Scott Brown & Robert Venturi Win 2016 AIA Gold Medal
Seattle’s LMN Architects Receives Firm of the Year Award
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced Denise Scott Brown and her husband and partner Robert Venturi as recipients of the 2016 AIA Gold Medal, the organization’s highest honor, reports the Architectural Record. Seattle’s LMN Architects received the Firm of the Year Award.
The announcement follows years of campaigning by the architecture community for a retroactive Prizker Architecture Prize for Scott Brown alongside Venturi, who was awarded the prize separately in 1991. “There were a lot of people who were really passionate about them getting recognize as a team,” says architect Caroline James, who was present for the announcement in Washington, D.C.
James with Harvard Graduate School of Design classmate Arielle Assouline-Lichten spearheaded efforts to get the Pritzker Prize to acknowledge Scott Brown. While thrilled about the Gold Medal announcement, James says they will continue to petition for Scott Brown’s recognition by the prize’s committee.
