Our other laureate, Gordon Bunshaft’s 40 years of building began with a now historic landmark in New York, Lever House and includes such famous designs as the Hirshhorn in Washington, the LBJ Library in Texas and his own favorite, his last design before retiring from Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the National Commercial Bank in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Gordon, if you will come forward on behalf of my family we’d like to present this symbol of the prize.
