Norman Foster Honored with Louis Kahn Memorial Award

Norman Foster Honored with Louis Kahn Memorial Award

Norman Foster has been awarded the Louis Kahn Memorial Award, an annual award that was established in 1983 to recognize "excellence in architecture" in honor of one of Philadelphia’s most influential architects.

"I am deeply honored to receive this award, particularly as I studied for my master’s degree at Kahn’s Yale University Art Gallery in 1961," said Foster. "I have been hugely influenced by his work, which is still as fresh today as it was then. I was privileged to meet Louis Kahn at the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture and to later teach there.”

An exhibition will take place in honor of Foster's selection at the Philadelphia Center for Architecture. Featuring detailed models, renderings and a timeline of concept sketches by Norman Foster, Designing Our Skyline: The Comcast Innovation and Technology Center by Foster + Partners will run through July.
