GEORGE NEMENY, FAIA (1911-1997)

Nemeny was a native of Budapest and established himself as an architect in New York City after his graduation from Cornell University College of Architecture in 1934. He won his first award in 1935 -- a Gold Medal in the American Academy in Rome Competition -- and went on to pioneer the cause of contemporary architecture in this country. For the next 40 years, until his retirement in the mid-1970s, he practiced his profession in and around New York City. He worked both alone and with Modernist Abraham W. Geller. Over the years he taught architectural design at Yale and Columbia and as a visiting critic at Cornell. His striking, airy residential designs led to his selection as one of the country's 10 leading architects by the American Institute of Architects in 1957, 1963, and 1964.
