At the Sir John Soane's Museum Foundation's Gala Celebration Dinner at the Rainbow Room in New York, Robert A.M. Stern will introduce Charles Jencks, a 2015 Honoree, known for his books questioning Modernist architecture and defining its successors – Late, New and Post-Modern architecture.
Every year the Soane Foundation celebrates Sir John Soane’s singular contributions as an architect and educator by bestowing Soane Foundation Honors on present day innovators, leaders, and visionaries in the fields of architecture, design, urban planning, architectural education and philanthropy at a celebratory dinner in an architecturally significant venue in New York City. In the last number of years, the Foundation has focused on professionals working specifically with museums and cultural institutions, as Sir John Soane was the architect of the first purpose-built public museum at Dulwich, just south of London, in 1811. Other honorees this year are Annabelle Selldorf and Thomas Heatherwick. Previous honorees include Robert A.M. Stern, David Adjaye, Phyllis Lambert, and Norman Foster.
