The architects will be feted at the Academy’s annual award and induction ceremony in May. Additionally, drawings and models of their work will be featured in an upcoming exhibition at the Academy’s galleries in Manhattan, from May 18 through June 10.

Candidates for the architecture awards are nominated by members of the Academy, an organization composed of 250 writers, composers, artists, and architects who foster interest in the arts and literature. A committee of architects, chaired by Richard Meier, makes the final selection. This year’s jury included Henry N. Cobb, Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves, Hugh Hardy, Steven Holl, Cesar Pelli, and James Stewart Polshek.
