NOTES: The Honorary Medal was designed by Thomas Donaldson, at the time Honorary Secretary of the RIBA, and sculpted by Benjamin Wyon. The obverse shows the Temple of Theseus with the motto of the Institute (Usui Civium, Decori Urbium), also invented by Donaldson. The medal was awarded over the years for essays and for measured drawings. The first award was made in 1836 to George Godwin for an essay on concrete.
