Albert Paley (b. 1944), modernist American metal sculptor, is the first to receive the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects - it's highest award to a non-architect. Paley has been active as an artist for over 30 years. Commissioned by both public institutions and private corporations, he has completed more than 50 site-specific works.
Notable examples are the Portal Gates, Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution; Synergy, a ceremonial archway in Philadelphia; Portal Gates for the New York State Senate; and a plaza sculpture for AT & T in Atlanta. Paley's work can be found in the permanent collections of many major museums including the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
