We have rounded up some of the reactions to this afternoon's news that Denise Scott Brown would not retroactively receive recognition for the Pritzker Prize that her husband, Robert Venturi, won in 1991.
Are we satisfied? No.— Alexandra Lange (@LangeAlexandra) June 14, 2013
Venturi won Pritzker in 1991. Jury that year: J. Carter Brown, Gio. Agnelli, Ada Louise Huxtable, Legorreta, Nakamura, Roche, Rothschild— ChristopherHawthorne (@HawthorneLAT) June 14, 2013
The Pritzker denies a public effort to recognize Denise Scott Brown. She tells me what she thinks of the decision. http://t.co/mNTCtk4wFO— Carolina A. Miranda (@cmonstah) June 14, 2013

We all are. Not the point. "@HawthorneLAT: "Let us assure you, however, that Ms. Scott Brown remains eligible for the Pritzker Award.""— Roxanne Button (@designsynergies) June 14, 2013
There is one woman and SEVEN MEN on the Pritzker Jury. They communicated: 'wait your turn, DSB.' http://t.co/eupArexpGC— Al Javieera (@AlJavieera) June 14, 2013
Weak response from Pritzker re D Scott Brown; they don't need to "second guess," they need to credit accurately http://t.co/GczfVzEHOY— Kian Goh (@kiangoh) June 14, 2013
Depressing enough for Pritzker to rebuff petition for Denise, but the Lordly patriarchal guff is truly awful http://t.co/pkuEYroK9C— Jeremy Till (@jeremytill) June 14, 2013
LAME. DSB retroactive Pritzker shot down thanks to circumspect reasoning about past juries: http://t.co/pbm3e1v8b7— Kelsey Keith (@kelseykeith) June 14, 2013
Just kick the Pritzker Prize to the curb. Since it translates into clientele and promotion, architects will denounce but not reject it.— Al Javieera (@AlJavieera) June 14, 2013
