Robert C. Ripley, FAIA, Nebraska Capitol Administrator, Office of the Capitol Commission, is the recipient of the 2015 Harry F. Cunningham Gold Medal for Architectural Excellence in the State of Nebraska. The Gold Medal is the highest honor the Nebraska Chapter of The American Institute of Architects (AIA) can bestow and is awarded in recognition of the most distinguished achievement in architecture or service to the profession of architecture in the State of Nebraska.
Nominators Dan Worth, AIA, BVH Architects and Fred Zarate, AIA, State of Nebraska said, “Nebraskans of all ages have been positively affected by Robert C. Ripley’s passion for public service, architecture and particularly by his passion for the conservation and preservation of the Nebraska State Capitol. Bob has been the caretaker, the steward, and the guardian of Nebraska’s history as depicted and beautifully contained within the walls and grounds of Bertram Goodhue’s monumental Capitol.”
For more than 32 years, Ripley’s core job has been to restore and preserve the Nebraska State Capitol, a National Historic Landmark, including the creation of a legacy Capitol Master Plan that will guide conservation of this national treasure for hundreds of years to come.
