Phyllis Lambert, architect and Founding Director Emeritus of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), has been announced as the winner of the 2016 Wolf Prize for the Arts. Awarded by the Wolf Foundation in Israel on June 2, the architect was cited for six decades of championing innovations in building design, for her preservation and regeneration efforts with significant historical works, and for her leadership the field of architectural research.

Announced as the winner in January, Lambert was chosen with the following reasoning: “Playing all possible roles of designer, planner, artist, writer, photographer, curator, museum director, patron and philanthropist, [she] ultimately stands for professional rigour and esthetic elegance, but also for intellectual doubt and political critique.”

Encompassing a broad range of art-related disciplines, the Wolf Prize for the Arts’ past architectural recipients have included Eduardo Souto De Moura in 2013, David Chipperfield and Peter Eisenman as co-winners in 2010, and Jean Nouvel in 2005.
