ABOUT THE NATIONAL BUILDING MUSEUM HONOR AWARD
The National Building Museum bestowed its first Honor Award in 1986 to recognize individuals and organizations that have made important contributions to the nation’s building heritage. Recipients are selected from a wide variety of backgrounds to call attention to the many factors that determine the form and quality of the built environment. Past honorees include Lady Bird Johnson, Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Cindy and Jay Pritzker, New Orleans Habitat Musicians’ Village founders Harry Connick, Jr. and Branford Marsalis, DuPont, and The Associated General Contractors of America.
The National Building Museum is America’s leading cultural institution dedicated to advancing the quality of the built environment by educating people about its impact on their lives.
