William Pedersen Receives 2013 Aiany Medal of Honor

Apr 19, 2013

The New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has awarded William Pedersen the 2013 Medal of Honor. Pedersen is the founding design partner of New York-based Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF).
During his career with KPF, Pedersen has received seven National Design Awards for his work, as well as several personal honors. Pedersen lectures internationally and serves on academic and professional juries and symposia. He also serves on the Board of the University of Minnesota Foundation and has been a visiting professor at the Rhode Island School of Design, Columbia University, and Harvard University. In 1989, he was honored as the Herbert S. Greenward Distinguished Professor in Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

"After Bill and I founded the firm with Shelly Fox in 1976, we sought to find a way for the tall building to relate to the urban street wall, and to be a participant in the urban context.” says Eugene Kohn, chairman of KPF. “Our firm remains committed to that concept and recognizes the important role of tall buildings. This prestigious award is one Bill truly deserves and acknowledges his success in making the tall building a more meaningful participant.”
