Thomas Phifer and Partners Receives 2011 AIA Institute Honor Award for Architecture (722309) by iSpy

The San Francisco Chronicle's architecture critic John King described Phifer as "a master of meticulous modernism who has won praise for gem-like private homes and such cultural facilities as [the 2015] addition to the Corning Museum of Glass", but criticized 222 Second Street (Phifer's first commercial office highrise, completed by Tishman Speyer in 2016) as "designed and built by New Yorkers" without taking the building's San Francisco surroundings into account.[7] Phifer received the Rome Prize in Architecture from the American Academy in Rome in 1995, and was honored with a residency the following year at the Academy’s campus.[2] In 2004, Phifer was awarded the Medal of Honor from the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).[5] Phifer’s Salt Point House won an American Architecture Award from the Chicago Atheneum in 2008.[5] In 2009, he received a Research and Development Award from Architect magazine for his international competition-winning design for New York City’s City Lights light fixture.[4] The Raymond and Susan Brochstein Pavilion and the North Carolina Museum of Art, both designed by Phifer’s firm, received National Honor Awards from the AIA in 2010 and 2011, respectively.[8][9] In 2011, Phifer received a Fellowship from the American Institute of Architects.[10] Phifer was also elected as an Academician for the National Academy of Design in 2012.[11] Phifer’s buildings have won seven AIA National Honor Awards and fourteen AIA New York Honor Awards.[12] In 2013, Phifer was awarded the Architecture Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters
