The American Academy of Arts and Letters has announced the recipients of its 2014 architecture awards. Recognized as an architect who has made a significant contribution to architecture as an art, Massimo Scolari was awarded the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture - a $20,000 award whose laureates include Peter Zumthor and this year’s Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban.

Independent documentary filmmaker Michael Blackwood and Anyone Corporation founder Cynthia Davidson were also recognized as “Americans who explore ideas in architecture through any medium of expression” and received two Arts and Letters Awards in Architecture of $7,500 each.
