March 17 | My Philadelphia Story: an Evening with Robert A.M. Stern

ICAA Philadelphia presents RAMSA’s Founding Partner Robert A. M. Stern for a virtual lecture where he will discuss the influence of Philadelphia on his more than half-century of practice as an architect, historian, and educator. Stern will chronicle youthful trips to Philadelphia with his family, discuss architects who have influenced his practice—Louis Kahn, George Howe, and Robert Venturi among them—and highlight some of the firm’s work throughout the city and along the Main Line, including Comcast Center, the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, the Museum of the American Revolution, and projects at Villanova University.  


Robert A.M. Stern is a practicing architect, teacher, and writer. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, and in 2017 received the Topaz Medallion, awarded jointly by the AIA and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture in recognition of outstanding service to architectural education. Mr. Stern is the 2011 Driehaus Prize laureate and in 2008 received the tenth Vincent Scully Prize from the National Building Museum. In 2007, he received both the Athena Award from the Congress for the New Urbanism and the Board of Directors’ Honor from the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. He has been a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences since 2007 and a member of the American Academy of Arts & Letters since 2011. continue
