    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?

    • dva

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

    • coisas

      why? what does china, japan and portugal has to do with politics?

  • Mauro

    Please correct ‘Murcut’ To ‘Murcutt’ (with double T)

    • Mark

      No morning coffee yet?

  • marcefran

    I am very surprised that I didn’t see Santiago Calatrava here.

  • Myself

    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.

  • Norman

    it’s a joke

    • Outraged

      Yes it’s a joke. It is clearly political and an insult to the architects who really deserve it.

      • Sudar Khadka

        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.

    why did wangshu say it’s not true…

  • travis


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

  • lynn

    come on,I.M.Pei is educated in USA.
    is these something to do with the GREAT PRC?

    • T

      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.
