The annual Jencks Award, organized by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), is given each year to an architect who has made a major contribution to both the theory and practice of architecture. This year, the award is given to architect, Eric Owen Moss. Eric Owen Moss has, over 30 years, evolved a unique local grammar of architecture in Culver City, Los Angeles. Here he has created a modern vernacular that is at once creative, critical and evocative – showing a commitment to place and character that is rare if not unique. The presentation and a public lecture will be held on December 6, 2011 in London. For more information, including registering for the event, please visit here.
