Japanese architect Riken Yamamoto receives Nobel Prize in Architecture

16:21, March 12

In the 45-year history of the Pritzker Prize, no country has produced more laureates than Japan. This year, 78-year-old Riken Yamamoto was named the ninth Japanese winner of what is often called the "Nobel Prize in Architecture," CNN reports.

Best known for his innovative housing projects and educational institutions, Yamamoto was something of a surprise choice. But in a press statement announcing the decision, jury chairman and former winner Alejandro Aravena described him as "an encouraging architect who brings dignity to everyday life." “Normal becomes extraordinary. Tranquility leads to splendor."

Throughout his five-decade career, Yamamoto has dedicated himself to community development in Japan's rapidly growing cities. From housing projects that encourage spontaneous interaction among residents to a glass-walled fire station that invites passersby to peer inside, his architecture seems to seek to "blur the boundaries between public and private dimensions."
