Daniel Patrick Moynihan Award

In his numerous political and academic roles, Daniel Patrick Moynihan emphasized social and economic justice. Prior to his election to the Senate, he served as Counselor to the President for Urban Affairs and was noted for his ability to meld academic research to public policies. As chair of the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, he expanded awareness of the effects of the environment and public infrastructure on communities. The Daniel Patrick Moynihan Award recognizes public officials or individuals who, through their efforts, have furthered the public’s awareness and/or appreciation of design excellence in public architecture.  This award is intended to recognize members of the public who made contributions to architecture.

Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller Award 

Nelson Rockefeller devoted a significant portion of his life to public service, most notably serving as the 49th Governor of the State of New York (1959–1973). During his tenure as Governor, he championed a progressive approach to art and architecture, overseeing the expansion of the State University of New York, the building of the Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza in Albany, and creation of the New York State Council on the Arts. The Nelson Rockefeller Award recognizes licensed architects employed in the public sector in New York State whose work on projects within their jurisdiction has furthered the cause of design excellence in public architecture.

Henry Hobson Richardson Award

One of the founding fathers of American architecture, Henry Hobson Richardson designed many significant public buildings in New York State and the United States. His design of the New York State Capital, Albany City Hall and the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane led to the establishment of his signature style, Richardsonian Romanesque, and greatly impacted the landscape of the cities in which they were built. Admired by his peers and lauded by architects since his death, Richardson’s career and body of work exemplify the importance of design excellence in the public sector. The Henry Hobson Richardson Award recognizes AIA members licensed in NYS and practicing in the private sector who have made a significant contribution to the quality of NYS public architecture and who have established a portfolio of accomplishments to that end.

Nominations can be made by all members of the public.
