Pritzker Prize 2016
Alejandro Aravena of Chile receives the 2016 Pritzker Architecture Prize.
Mr. Pritzker said, “The jury has selected an architect who deepens our understanding of what is truly great design. Alejandro Aravena has pioneered a collaborative practice that produces powerful works of architecture and also addresses key challenges of the 21st century. His built work gives economic opportunity to the less privileged, mitigates the effects of natural disasters, reduces energy consumption, and provides welcoming public space. Innovative and inspiring, he shows how architecture at its best can improve people’s lives.”
Congratulations to Alejandro Aravena who will also be speaking as director of the upcoming Biennale in the Italian Embassy on the 25th of February!
