Who is the new Pritzker prize-winner?

In 2016, the winner of Pritzker Prize is an architect from Chile, Alejandro Aravena.


This has been announced on the official website of the prize organisers. The award ceremony will take place on April 4th at the UNO Headquarters in New York. This year, it will be awarded for the 41st time.

To remind you, this is the most prestigious prize for architects, and is awarded annually. It was founded by the Pritzker family (owners of the worldwide Hyatt hotel chain) in 1979. The most famous of contemporary architects – Zaha Hadid, Oscar Niemeyer, Renzo Piano, Rem Koolhaas and Frank Gehry – have won it.

The present winner, Alejandro Aravena, was born in 1967. He graduated from the Catholic University of Chili in 1992 and then from the Architectural College of the University of Venice (1992-1993).

The buildings of the Mathematics and Physics faculties of the Catholic University of Chile, as well as the Angelini Innovation Center (2014), were designed by him.

The architect has also designed public and educational institutions in Saint Andrew’s University in Austin (Texas, USA) and the headquarters of the Novartis pharmaceutical company in Shanghai (PRC).

This year he will be the supervisor of the main project at the 15th Architectural Biennale in Venice, which is to take place from May 28th until November 27th.
