Described by Architectural Digest as “the Oscars of the design world,” the Arthur Ross Awards celebrate the lifetime achievements of architects, artists, and historians in the classical tradition of design. Named for a native New Yorker who spearheaded the revitalization of Central Park in the 1970s, the Awards quickly grew to become a major force of change in design history.

This program features six recipients of the Award and some of their most iconic designs, in Connecticut and beyond, as they reflect on the impact of this distinction on their careers. Their efforts demonstrate the importance of human-centered design, not just in our past, but in our future.
