Arata Isozaki wins this year’s Pritzker Prize, the highest architectural accolade

At the time when western countries traditionally influenced the East, Arata Isozaki was one of the first Japanese architects to build outside of Japan. During the span of his six decades-long career, Isozaki channeled his curiosity to the world in cross-cultural architecture practice. The Art Tower in Mito, MOCA in LA, the Kyoto concert Hall, the Shenzhen Cultural Centre—-the list of his notable works goes on.

This year, the Pritzker jury recognised him for his contribution to pioneering a global approach to architecture.
