..... about Todd Williams & Billie Tsien?
hmmm... i'm going on record: if steven holl doesn't get it this year, someone ought to investigate the jury for malpractice.
Kanye West all the way LOL
DICK BUSCH ARCHITECTS!
I totally agree with Gregory.
But I also agree with chigurh. In fact Dick Busch is the *only* architect acceptable in lieu of Steven Holl - then Holl would get it next year, of course.
In my opinion, they ought to withhold it from Steven Holl on principle for that horrific white thing he just finished next to the C.R. Mackintosh Glasgow School of Art. But I don't get to vote.
I've had my bid in for Holl for years, but I don't see the point any more. Someone's got something against him.
Leon Kreir. I can just feel it.
they should give it to vitruvious posthumously. unless he's already won it?
Kengo Kuma. Or David Chipperfield.
Holl seems likely, or if they decide to give it to consider partnerships, maybe Coop Himmelblau, UNStudio, Snohetta or Fuksas?
Time to work on your spelling, guys. :)
I'm thinking Stephen Hole
Holl has had an incredible year, if he doesn't win I would really be shocked.
Ha! That's funny. Stephen Hole or is that another spelling mistake.
Steven or chipper field is likely. But i think its about time it goes to Peter Eisenman and when he is alive.
They should just give it to Robert Venturi again.....
Denise Scott Brown - make it right Pritzkers
The design media in 2013: Pritzker Prize has lost its relevance! It promotes the sole male genius!
The design media in 2014: Who will it be? Who will it be? OMG! I can't wait!
Haha, the hypocrites.
My ex-boss! Sam Abramovitz
he is the one who really deserves the prize.
abracadabra, faia will get it and send Steven Holl in Navajo war dress to pick it up. He will make a speech in Navajo code talk that nobody can understand. And according to what I told him, he will go to Margot and Tom Pritzker's table in the front raw and hand the coin to Margot and say, "hey honey, here is your coin, go put it in a washing machine."
MVRDV or Francine Houben/Mecanoo, it's time for another Dutch laureate.
Four hours til the announcement.....
i would vote for abracadabra faia. that's probably why they don't give me a vote.
Japanese architect Shigeru Ban has won this year's Pritzker Prize.
Shigeru Ban named as 2014 Pritzker Prize Laureate
Yep, Holl's streak continues. He's been blacklisted or something.
pffffffttt .......... Shigeru > Holl xP
Not wanting to sound too detached, but... does anyone else not give a rip?
It reminds me a little of the the hype surrounding the Oscars....
i suck. i'm never trying to outguess this bunch ever again...
Kanye West is going to be really pissed.
kayne has to compete with pharrell for next year now
Nah, I think they may go for Ice Cube. He appeals to the (very) young minority demographic, which is what the AIA is after now, right?
Kanye made it on the cover of Vogue with Kardashain... anyone know for what?
This is the U$, eveything is for sale.
citizen, I really want Holl to get one. Once he does I won't really care much beyond mild interest who wins the rest of them (oh, and the DSB contretemps still angers me, so I "care" in that I'm interested in that PR fiasco).
Pritzker Prize should be biennial, quinquennial, or even decennial.
I understand, Donna. I'm not really talking about personal preferences, which are of course natural. I like Holl's work, too. I like to see my favorite movies win Oscars, too.
It's just the hype (among some, not all) that I'm poking at. Another geezer-blast, that's all, similar to "you kids get off my lawn!" ;o)
Creating beautiful architecture doesn't cut it for the Pritzker Prize. Many can do that. What matters is how has the architect influenced or contributed to architecture in a profound way. :)
The asian architects are taking over it seems xP
Why does everyone want Holl to win this thing that's the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in architecture? Has he played the game too well? Is he the most loyal of team players who's heart will break if he dosen't get one more medal on his chest? I find the whole architectural establishment endlessly fascinating.
I think the prize given to Robert Venturi shell be confiscated and canceled.
The guy has driven us into a big sh#t called postmodern, the sh#t we still are unable to recover from.
I'd add Gehry, Hadid, Herzog & De Moron, Koolhaas, Moreno, Mayne, Meier and Johnson.
"The guy has driven us into a big sh#t called postmodern, the sh#t we still are unable to recover from."
Are we sheep? When did we stop thinking for ourselves? If there is blame to be assigned, I think it also should cover those who blindly followed those guys down that path.
You are the one who think that way but some of the architects that you mentioned in there really deserved it to win the Prize such as Herzog and de Meuron who you named them badly in your comment. I can see your ignorance in that because even architects such Eduardo Souto de Moura likes the work of H&dM because they know what they are doing most of the time.
