The National Building Museum has announced Charlie Rose as the recipient of the 2014 Vincent Scully Prize. The American talk show host and journalist was honored for his exploration “good design, the growth of cities, and the shape of the urban form through his insightful and substantive conversations with leading thinkers of our day.”

“One of the great joys of spending twenty-five years at the table is meeting a cross-section of the best in culture and science and technology,” said Rose. “I have a special place for the men and women who inspire us with the buildings they create. Architecture is a passion of mine and I’ve been proud to know not only architects but also those who teach, assess, and love great buildings. Architecture is one of the reflections of the permanence of a civilization. I am indeed honored to be the recipient of the Vincent Scully Prize, named for a man I have known, admired, and interviewed.”

A public award ceremony and lecture by Mr. Rose will be held the following evening, November 19, from 6:30 to 8 pm. During the program, Rose will discuss his experiences with many of the world’s foremost architects, and will then be interviewed by writer and public radio host Kurt Andersen.

    Charlie Rose is a very deserving recipient. He’s part of my daily diet of information and inspiration.

      But doesn’t his name dropping, vanity fawning, answering his own questions, bringing Kissinger on again and again as some kind of expert, interrupting his guests mid-sentence make you cringe just a bi?
