Richard Serra has been announced as the first artist to win the Architectural League of New York President’s Medal. Serra, an American sculptor known for his large-scale sheet metal installations, was honored for “contributions his work makes to the way we think about space, viewer and object, site, and materiality, concerns relevant to both architects and the artist.”

Past recipients range from Renzo Piano to Ada Louise Huxtable, all of whom are individuals who have an extraordinary body of work in architecture, urbanism, art, or design.
