The Hyatt Foundation has shared the official announcement date of the 2023 Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate. The winner of the 2023 Pritzker Architecture Prize will be announced on Tuesday, March 7th, 2022 (10am EST).
The Pritzker Architecture Prize is internationally known as architecture’s highest honor and will announce its 2023 Laureate next week.
The aim of this international prize is “to honor a living architect or architects whose built work demonstrates a combination of those qualities of talent, vision, and commitment, which has produced consistent and significant contributions to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.”
Established by the Pritzker family of Chicago through their Hyatt Foundation in 1979, the Pritzker Architecture Prize is granted annually and is often referred to as “architecture’s Nobel” and “the profession’s highest honor.”
The laureate will be awarded a $100,000 (US) cash prize and a bronze medallion. The award is conferred on the laureate/s at a ceremony held at an architecturally significant site throughout the world.
