Inga Saffron named 18th Laureates of Vincent Scully Prize

By Tiffany Mercer-Robbins

It’s a thrill to see the 2018 Vincent Scully prize go to the Philadelphia Inquirer architecture critic, Inga Saffron.   She and her Boston colleague, Robert Campbell FAIA, represent a rare and exceedingly valuable breed.  Together they richly deserve the stunningly distinguished company of the Scully’s past award recipients.  

To anyone in Philadelphia who cares about design and the built environment, Inga Saffron is a treasure.   Her profound value lies in hitting hard on what really matters in design.   Always transcending her role as art critic, Inga makes Architecture itself legible for the public at large.  Through her, people can read and understand the social, economic, historic and humanistic contexts that make Architecture a vivid and vital subject for civic discourse.   While her engaging wit rewards readers for paying attention, each article teaches something seriously important about design.   

Along the way, she keeps Philadelphia’s architect and developers on their toes, steadily elevating our city as a better and better place to live.
