Richard Serra wins architectural award

For the first time in its 133-year history, the Architectural League of New York is presenting its presidential medal to an artist: Richard Serra.

The league's president, Annabel Selldorf, said the artist "engages the sense in terms of scale, space, volume and materiality in a way that is inevitably fascinating for every architect."
