Sou Fujimoto Awarded Marcus Prize

Sou Fujimoto Awarded Marcus Prize

As the youngest architect ever to design the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London, it is no surprise that 41-year-old Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has been selected as winner of the $100,000 Marcus Prize. Awarded by the Milwaukee-based Marcus Corporation Foundation, the biennial prize is dedicated to honoring emerging designers by requiring only a decade of exceptional leadership in their field.

This award doesn’t come with responsibility, as Fujimoto will be required to visit the graduate students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Architecture and Urban Planning a handful of times through the next year, in addition to skyping with a class as often as once per week. 

2013 Marcus Prize Jurors:

  • Brian Lee of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill in Chicago
  • William Menking, founder and editor of Architect’s Newspaper in New York
  • Donna V. Robertson, the chair of the IIT College of Architecture in Chicago
  • Robert Greenstreet, dean of UWM's architecture school
  • Mo Zell, associate professor and associate dean at UWM's architecture school
  • Greg Marcus, president and CEO of the Marcus Corporation Foundation
