AIA Arizona State Conference 2023


Carol Ross Barney and Marlene Imirzian | AIA Arizona State Conference 2023


Marlene Imirzian was invited to host a conversation with the 2023 AIA Gold Medal recipient, Carol Ross Barney, FAIA, at the AIA Arizona State Conference 2023.

The Gold Medal is the American Institute of Architect’s highest annual honor that recognizes an individual’s influence on the theory and practice of architecture. Chicago-based Carol Ross Barney is the first living woman to ever receive the distinguished award individually. Imirzian and Barney spoke about the importance of contributing to the built environment, the profession of architecture, and Barney’s body of works nearly exclusive to the public realm.
