AIA Honors Joint Creativity by Revising Gold Medal Award Criteria

Perot Museum of Nature and Science designed by the 2013 Gold Medal Award Winner: Thom Mayne of Morphosis

In the wake of Pritzker’s refusal to retroactively acknowledge Denise Scott Brown’s role in Robert Venturi’s 1991 Pritzker Prize, the American Institute of Architects () Board of Directors have voted to expand the prestigious Gold Medal award’s criteria to include either an individual or two individuals working together in a collaborative partnership. In order to be considered, partners must have created a singular body of distinguished architectural work.
