Architecture Watch: Nouvel Scores Pritzker Prize

Score one for Jean Nouvel; the Paris-based architect has been awarded the Pritzker Architecture Prize, generally considered in the field as the motherlode of all accolades. (Note the that jury is chaired by one Lord Palumbo. Love.) In the winner's own words: "My interest has always been in an architecture which reflects the modernity of our epoch as opposed to the rethinking of historical references. My work deals with what is happening now?our techniques and materials, what we are capable of doing today." [Death by Architecture]
