The MacDowell Colony, the nation's leading artist residency program, will present its Edward MacDowell Medal this year to architect Thom Mayne. He will be the 49th recipient of the MacDowell Medal, which is awarded annually to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the arts. Mayne joins an impressive list of past recipients, including Leonard Bernstein, Thornton Wilder, Georgia O'Keeffe, and fellow architect I.M. Pei. Bustler
Just a collection of my thoughts or links to other thoughts on architecture and design.
