The title of People's Architect of the USSR was established by a Supreme Soviet decree in 1967, later than some other similar highest degrees of recognition such as People's Medical Doctor, Artist, and Performance Artist. The medal was introduced in 1985 and at that point, probably back- issued to most surviving holders of the title. Due to the relatively limited number of people working in this profession, the title of People's Architect was awarded far more sparingly than many others, and as a result, The Architect's medal is harder to find than most of the others.
