greaseproof architecture since 2000

Priztker 2009

The winner of this year’s Pritzker Prize, and $100,000 from the Hyatt vaults, is Peter Zumthor. Much is being made of his not being a starchitect, and therefore suitable for receiving the first big gong of the GFC. The man himself defends his lack of a glossy mag profile in a Bloomberg interview last week: “To build good houses doesn’t take a lot of publicity; that just gets in the way. I have to stay concentrated on what I want to make. That way I don’t allow myself to get distracted.”

The New Yorker has an article with a pretty photo by local lad Rory Hyde , and The New York Times has a brief slideshow of the masterworks.
