USC Architectural Guild Annual Dinner

Honoring FAIA 2017 Gold Medal Recipient Paul Revere Williams

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Beverly Hills Hotel

 

The USC Architectural Guild is pleased to announce that USC Architecture non degreed Alumnus, Paul Revere Williams, has been selected as the recipient of the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award.  

 

Paul Revere Williams – Born in 1894 and orphaned at age four, USC alumnus Paul Revere Williams rose to become one of the great architects of the twentieth century. His elegant homes and iconic commercial buildings established the architectural landscape of Los Angeles and continue to shape it today.

He was a pioneer in every sense. The first black member of the American Institute of Architects and its first black Fellow, he served on state and presidential commissions and traveled the world designing structures. This year he is also the recipient of the AIA gold medal, the AIA’s highest annual honor.

 

He is perhaps best known, however, as the “architect to the stars.” His portfolio of celebrity clients included Sinatra, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Tyrone Power, Lon Chaney, Bert Lahr and Zsa Zsa Gabor. To this day, Hollywood royalty live in Williams-designed homes in Beverly Hills, Bel Air, San Marino and other communities. 

 

With over 3,000 structures worldwide, his diverse local work ranges from celebrity homes to churches, office buildings on Central Avenue to the Theme Building at the Los Angeles International Airport and public housing to the Beverly Hills Hotel.

 

To the end and until he died in 1980, Williams referred to architecture as his “hobby.”
