Arts and Letters Award in Architecture
Paul Goldberger won a 2017 Architecture Award from the Academy of Arts and Letters for his exploration of ideas in architecture.
“Author, critic, and lecturer Paul Goldberger’s “broad influence stems from his capacity to engage the reader in a mutual appreciation of architecture,” said Kenneth Frampton. Currently the Joseph Urban Chair in Design and Architecture at The New School in New York City, he taught previously at the Yale School of Architecture and the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley. Through his books and as architecture critic for the New York Times, the New Yorker, and Vanity Fair, Goldberger has earned a “reputation as the doyen of American architectural critics,” Frampton said, “making the topic readily accessible to the society at large.” Notable books include Building Art, (2015); Why Architecture Matters (2009); Building Up and Tearing Down: Reflections on the Age of Architecture (2009); and UP FROM ZERO: Politics, Architecture, and the Rebuilding of New York (2004).”
