Stern snares Scully Prize

Robert A.M. Stern ARC ’65, the Dean of the School of Architecture, has had quite a week.

After rededicating the architectural masterpiece of his mentor Paul Rudolph, Stern is being honored in the name of another mentor, Professor Vincent Scully ’40 GRD ’49. The National Building Museum awarded Stern the prestigious 10th annual Vincent Scully Prize at a ceremony in Washington D.C. on Wednesday night, in front of an audience of leaders in architecture, urban planning and education as well as University President Richard Levin and other top administrators.

“Stern is the organizer of civilized conversation in architectural circles,” Scully said. “He prevents polarization and creates dialogue about architecture. This award is not given for knock-your-eye-out designs.”
