This week in A&D
An Iconic Architect, Recognized
This week in 1991, hundreds of architects from around the U.S. gathered to reward the American Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal to Charles W. Moore, a professor of architecture at the University of Texas and the former dean of the school of architecture at Yale University.
Moore, who died two years later, is known for many ambitious and iconic buildings that have withstood time including a series of condos at Sea Ranch in northern California (which won AIA’s Twenty-Five Year Award) and the civic center in Beverly Hills. He was also an esteemed teacher and writer who is still widely read today.
