    These Pritzker jury decision lately have felt more like political statements than efforts to honor the best architects in the world.

    Am I missing something here?

    • Thumb up Thumb down +1

      Yes you’re missing the whole work of a great architect. Try to get more informations about it. What a pity!

    When you can only choose the work of one person there is always someone who is disappointed. With so many great architects out there I guess it is imposessible for everyone to be on this list.

        so who would you give it to? i bet whoever else you choose give it too could be seen as “political” as well if you look with the intent of finding political motive.

    Please kindly correct that the nationality of I.M. Pei is USA/China instead of just USA.

    • Thumb up Thumb down 0

      YES! it does do with China, because Pei was born in China, respectfully just like Gehry was born in Canada & Hadid was born in Iraq.

      with your “LOGIC”, now many people here knows you are the ONLY one who thinks Pei, Hadid & Gehry are American, because once they all were educated in USA.
