Dudok, William

Dudok, William, 1884-1974, Dutch architect. Dudok developed a dignified, widely influential style emphasizing the horizontal and utilizing an asymmetric effect with cubic groupings. As chief architect of the town of Hilversum, he worked almost exclusively in brick. He also designed theaters, stores, and housing projects, including Erasmus House (1937) and the Bijenkorf Store (1929-30) in Rotterdam.
The AIA Gold Medal is awarded by the American Institute of Architects conferred "by the national AIA Board of Directors in recognition of a significant body of work of lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture."

It is the Institute's highest award. Since 1947, the medal has been more-or-less annual. In recent years the Gold Medal has been somewhat overshadowed by the better-publicized Pritzker Prize.
