Dean Marilyn Jordan Taylor on Richard Rogers (Video)

Recipient of 2015 ULI J.C. Nichols Prize

PennDesign Dean Marilyn Jordan Taylor is featured in a new video honoring renowned architect Richard Rogers for his people-oriented building design and development. Rogers is the 2015 recipient of the Urban Land Institute's (ULI) J.C. Nichols Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development, and the video was released in conjunction with the ULI Europe Conference in Paris, where Rogers was the featured speaker.  

"He's an architect who excels at what he does, but he's gone beyond the bounds of architecture, to address−in every possible way−the responsible use of land," says Dean Taylor, who served as chair of this year's Nichols Prize jury

The ULI J.C. Nichols Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development was established to recognize an individual, or a person representing an institution, whose career demonstrates a commitment to the highest standards of responsible development. The $100,000 prize honors the legacy of legendary Kansas City, Missouri, developer Jesse Clyde Nichols (1880 - 1950), a founding ULI member who is widely regarded as one of America’s most influential entrepreneurs in land use during the first half of the 20th century.
