Gehry's work has earned him several of the most significant awards in the architectural field. In 1977, he received the Arnold W. Brunner Memorial Prize in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 1989, he was awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize, perhaps the highest accolade of the field, honouring "significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture." Other notable awards include the Gold Medal from the American Institute of Architects, the Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Lifetime Achievement Award from Americans for the Arts, and the Gold Medal for Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Gehry was named a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1987, a trustee of the American Academy in Rome in 1989, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1991.
