Unbuilt – Built: The Influence of the Progressive Architecture Awards

National Building Museum AIA Headquarters

Washington DC, Washington DC

May 14, 2012 - August 31, 2012

Launched in 1953 by Progressive Architecture (P/A) magazine and now administered by Architect Magazine, the annual P/A Awards have long been regarded as bellwethers of emerging trends in design theory and practice worldwide. The program has advanced the careers of young designers, provided impetus for the realization of daring projects, and altered the course of architectural debate.

This exhibition presents 25 past P/A Award winners – all of them later built – that proved particularly influential in the Architecture community. Designed by Richard Meier & Partners, the United States Courthouse in Phoenix, Arizona is part of the selected projects displayed in the exhibition.
