The National Building Museum just announced that the winner of the 2012 Vincent Scully Prize is architecture critic Paul Goldberger for “his lifetime work of encouraging thoughtful discourse and debate about the importance of design.” Goldberger joins Jane Jacobs, Witold Rybczynski, Robert Venturi, the Aga Khan, Robert A.M. Stern and Richard Moe as winners of the prize, which the NBM established in 1999 to acknowledge exemplary practice, scholarship, or criticism in architecture, historic preservation, and urban design.
Goldberger was the guest on Episode No. 23 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast, on which we discussed American museum architecture. Download it directly to your mobile device/PC.
