The American Academy of Arts and Letters has awarded the 2012 Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture to Kathryn Gustafson, ASLA, of Gustafson Guthrie Nichol in Seattle and Gustafson Porter in London. The award is “given to an architect of any nationality who has made a significant contribution to architecture as an art.” Hold the hair-splitting about Gustafson’s being a landscape architect. It’s a major prize, and well deserved. Gustafson is the third landscape architect to receive the award since it began in 1955; the other two have been Dan Kiley in 1995 and Michael Van Valkenburgh, FASLA, in 2010.
