The Pritzker Prize is considered the most relevant recognition in architecture. Established by the Pritzker family of Chicago through their Hyatt Foundation in 1979, the award is granted annually "to honor a living architect or architects whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision, and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture," as the foundation states on its website.
