In 1992, ADPSR instituted an annual Lewis Mumford awards program to
honor people and organizations whose work exemplifies social
responsibility. The awards were named after Lewis Mumford (1895-1990) an
American historian, sociologist, philosopher, and critic, noted for his
study of cities and urban architecture. Lewis Mumford's writings
continue to inspire and remind us that architecture, design, and
planning must respond to human needs, harmonize with its surroundings,
and reflect the aspirations and social context of our civilization.
