    The 2012 laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize is Chinese architect Wang Shu. At only 48 years old, he has designed some two dozen works in China, in a variety of styles. "Wang Shu's architecture is exemplary in its strong sense of cultural continuity and re-invigorated tradition," commented the prize jury, noting the "exceptional nature and quality of his executed work."


    More Building Culture

    Article Image


    As architects, we generally consider how a building meets the ground — in essence, we design a base that holds the building in place. But we seldom have to design this base while traversing a change in grade some 50 feet (15 meters) along nearly 500 feet (150 meters) of a building's length.   (Published 2012.0222)
