Last week, the very influential Architectural critic Ada Louise Huxtable passed away at the age of 91. As an Architecture Critic in New York City, Ms. Huxtable offered insight into the relationship between architecture and human nature. She was most notably known for “celebrating buildings that respected human dignity and civic history — and memorably scalding those that did not”. Her impact on the world of architecture will not be forgotten.
Ada Louise Huxtable was the first person to win the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism in 1970.
