    PRITZKER PRIZE GOES TO SANAA

    The Pritzker Architecture Prize for 2010 goes to Japanese architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, partners in the Tokyo-based firm SANAA. The jury lauded the pair's work as "delicate and powerful, precise and fluid, ingenious but not overly or overtly clever... creating a sense of fullness and experiential richness." SANAA has several significant built works in Japan, with noteworthy projects in Europe and the United States as well.

    AIA NATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS 2010

    Among the brick buildings and live oaks at Rice University in Houston stands the Brochstein Pavilion, a cleanly patterned, rhythmic composition of glass and metal. With indoor and outdoor seating shaded from the Texas sun, this structure by Thomas Phifer and Partners offers a casual gathering space in the central quad, inviting activity while blending into the existing campus fabric.

    The pavilion was among the 28 projects recognized by the American Institute of Architects in its 2010 AIA Institute Honor Awards.
