Celebrating Edward Mazria, the 2021 AIA Gold Medalist
December 2021 | announcements
“On receiving the AIA Gold Medal an old saying by Nelson Mandela comes to mind:
‘In Africa there is a concept known as ubuntu … that if we are to accomplish anything in this world, it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievements of others.'”
– Edward Mazria, FAIA
Edward Mazria, FAIA, was named the AIA Gold Medalist for 2021.
