John Q. Hejduk Award

The John Q. Hejduk Award, established in 2003, is given to a graduate of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture who has made an outstanding contribution to the theory, teaching and/or practice of architecture. The recipient reflects the passion and commitment that John Hejduk, Cooper Union faculty member from 1964-2000 and Dean of the School of Architecture from 1975-2000, had for architecture. Prior to 2003, architecture alumni were among those honored with the Augustus Saint-Gaudens Award.
