Architecture Critic Paul Golderger Receives Vincent Scully Prize

09 November, 2012

-By Emily Hooper


The National Building Museum will award its Vincent Scully Prize to architecture critic Paul Goldberger for his lifetime work encouraging thoughtful discourse and debate about the importance of design. Goldberger has written for many publications including the New York Times and the New Yorker. He is currently a contributing editor at Vanity Fair.

In a presentation on November 15, Goldberger will deliver an original presentation about the state of architecture criticism today, the changing role of mainstream media in a digital world, and the rise of citizen journalists. Architectural designer and artist, Maya Lin, will make the opening remarks.

According to Scully prize juror Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Golberger was selected for his unique ability to “explain architecture to the popular readership in a way that bridges the perceiver and the designer.” David Schwarz adds “Paul is a person who lets people understand the importance of place.”

In 1999, the Scully Prize was established to honor Vincent Scully, Sterling Professor Emeritus of the history of art at Yale University and a distinguished visiting professor at the University of Miami. As a way for the National Building Museum to recognize exemplary practice, scholarship, or criticism in architecture, historic preservation, and urban design, the prize has become known as one of the most important awards in the field.
