Complete List of Recipients
The deadline for the 2013 program has passed.
The 2014 information will be posted in the summer of 2013. Until that time we encourage you to use the 2013 AIA/ACSA Topaz Medallion Walk-Through as a guideline.
Candidates will be evaluated on how well they meet the program criteria which may include:
• The candidate has spent at least a decade primarily involved in architectural education and is living at the time of nomination.
• The candidate’s primary contribution to architectural education has been on the North American continent.
• The candidate shall have evidenced great depth, having a cumulative effect on a long line of students.
• The candidate shall have evidenced great breadth, having influenced a wide range of students.
• The candidate shall be a person whose activities have consistently directed themselves toward the future as well as the past.
• The candidate shall have evidenced the ability to transcend specific areas of expertise or shall have made connections between areas, in the event that the candidate’s areas of focus might be considered circumscribed.
• The candidate shall be widely known by the quality of his or her products: by those who also taught, by those who practiced architecture, and by those who perhaps did neither.
Any colleague, student, or former student may nominate candidates for the Topaz Medallion.
