The Amer­i­can In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects topped off 2017 with the an­nounce­ment of sev­eral awards, in­clud­ing the 2018 Gold Medal, which went to New York ar­chi­tect James Ste­wart Pol­shek. Renowned for his so­cially con­scious work, Pol­shek was re­spon­si­ble for the 1987 restora­tion of Carnegie Hall. The AIA also hon­oured Ne­braska’s Ta­mara Ea­gle Bull, with the 2018 Whit­ney M. Young Jr. Award. Prac­tic­ing for over 30 years, Ea­gle Bull was the first Na­tive Amer­i­can woman to be­come a li­censed ar­chi­tect in the U.S. and has been a tire­less ad­vo­cate for cul­tur­ally re­spon­si­ble de­sign. Other ac­co­lades went to Lenore M. Lucey and to Snow Kreilich Ar­chi­tects, which was named as the 2018 AIA Ar­chi­tec­ture Firm Award win­ner.
