The Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal in Architecture is presented for notable achievement in design or for distinguished contributions to the field of architecture. The award has been given every year since the establishment of the foundation in 1966. The award is granted jointly by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation and the University of Virginia School of Architecture. Along with the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal in Law and the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal in Public Citizenry, the awards are the highest outside honors offered by the University, which does not grant honorary degrees. Its recipients are not required to be architects.[1]
