    Richard Rogers Pritzker Prize

    by ArchitectureWeek

    The Pritzker Prize, one of the world's highest honors in architecture, goes this year to British architect Richard Rogers. In announcing the jury's choice, Thomas J. Pritzker, president of The Hyatt Foundation, said: "Rogers is a champion of urban life and believes in the potential of the city to be a catalyst for social change."

    Rogers first came to international attention in the 1970s for his work with Italian architect Renzo Piano on the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Since then he has gained recognition for the Lloyds Building and the Millennium Dome, both in London, Barajas New Area Terminal in Madrid, designed with Estudio Lamela Arquitectos, and, most recently, the National Assembly for Wales in Cardiff.

    The Pritzker jury citation reads: "A unique interpretation of the modern movement's fascination with the building as machine, an interest in architectural clarity and transparency, the integration of public and private spaces, and a commitment to flexible floor plans that respond to the ever-changing demands of users, are recurring themes in his work."   >>>
