Grimshaw awarded AIA New York Medal of Honour

  • Comment

Grimshaw has been handed the New York branch of the American Institute of Architects’ 2015 Medal of Honour

The practice, which opened its New York office in 2001, was recognised for its firm’s ‘consistent relentless pursuit of design excellence and a commitment to projects that deeply impact the public and improve the experience of the public realm’.

Grimshaw has completed a number of projects in the American city including the AJ120 Building of the Year-shortlisted Fulton Centre, the 2013 Lubetkin Prize-shortlisted Via Verde housing scheme and the renovation and expansion of the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

The Medal of Honour is the AIA New York’s highest accolade. Previous winners have included Mies van der Rohe, Daniel Libeskind, and Louis Skidmore.

In 2013 the 100-year-old medal was redesigned by Portuguese sculptor, medalist, and professor João Duarte.
