College of Environmental Design alumnus Max Levy, FAIA, (BA Arch '71) has been named the 2017 honoree for the Texas Society of Architects O’Neil Ford Medal for Design Achievement. Levy is one of the leading residential architects in Dallas and is well known for his most recent award-winning projects including Prospect House, House on Rainbo Lake, and the Saint Michael and All Angels Columbarium.
The Texas Society of Architects’ O’Neil Ford Medal recognizes outstanding achievement in architectural design as exemplified in a body of work produced by an individual architect over a period of at least 20 years. The award was introduced in 2015. Levy joins Frank D. Welch, FAIA, and joint recipients Boone Powell, FAIA and Chris Carson, FAIA.
“Max Levy is an extraordinary practitioner who creates profound architecture of convincing authority from modest circumstances, most often at a domestic scale. In view of his long career proving that carefully crafted ideas, meticulously executed, can make places of distinction from humble materials, the award is both apt and appropriate,” said the jury who deliberated over the award recipient.
The O’Neil Ford medal will be presented to Levy at the 2017 Texas Society of Architects Convention in Austin this November 9-11.
