Pritzker Prize is one of the most wanted in the architectural area and the ceremony will happen at the same time as Maison&Objet Americas 2015 in the 15 May. So if you are going to Miami you can go and meet Pritzker prize previous winners.
The purpose of the Pritzer Prize is to honor a living architect or architects whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision, and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.
The international prize, which is awarded each year to a living architect/s for significant achievement, was established by the Pritzker family of Chicago through their Hyatt Foundation in 1979. It is granted annually and is often referred to as “architecture’s Nobel” and “the profession’s highest honor.”
The award consists of $100,000 (US) and a bronze medallion. The award is conferred on the laureate/s at a ceremony held at an architecturally significant site throughout the world.
Nominations are accepted internationally from persons from diverse fields who have a knowledge of and interest in advancing great architecture.
