    On May 17, 2011, a special 25th anniversary celebration of the National Building Museum’s Honor Award united our history and our future. Together with our past honorees, we celebrated the importance of the world we build and look to the inspiring possibilities of the next 25 years. The gala featured a keynote address by David Rockwell, Founder and CEO of Rockwell Group, an award-winning, cross-disciplinary architecture and design practice which focuses on a diverse array of projects from hotels to hospitals, restaurants to airport terminals, and Broadway set designs to products. Since 1986, the National Building Museum has presented its Honor Award to leaders who shaped our heritage, defined our culture, developed our communities, and crafted our built environment. Individually, they advanced our building arts and sciences. Collectively, their legacy is profound.
