“The essence of the Gabriel Prize is not about the final three drawings. The essence of the Gabriel Prize is about the experience.

And when somebody looks at that and takes that approach, they will actually find that they start learning from the moment that they fill the application."

- PJ Fleming, President

Support the Foundation

The Gabriel Prize is a United States charitable organization founded in 1990 through the bequest of George Parker, Jr. Through prudent financial management, we have been able to continue his mission for 30 years, far longer than he ever anticipated.

Our Laureates have since shared with us the life changing experiences they have had due to their transformative time of study and drawing with the Gabriel Prize - from gaining tenure at universities, to publishing their own books, to simply regaining their source of inspiration to continue their practice.

The Gabriel Prize has changed their lives and allowed them to draw their future. It has brought a missing element of the past for later American architects to study and appreciate. We are asking for your support to help us continue this mission and to change a few more lives. And in doing so, the future of American architecture.
