Mark Lamster has written a thoughtful, perhaps realist, and certainly sad article entitled “The Guru Track” in the Observatory section of Design Observer discussing the sexism, historically, at the very least, prevalent in the world of architecture and perhaps validated by the Pritzker Prize attributions and the possibility of the growing chasm between prize-winning “starchitects” and those unknown architects responsible for a large body of very good work. Including a number of very valid observations concerning The New Museum in New York, an example of the work of SANAA, the Pritzker winner for 2010. Very interesting, and thought provoking, reading.
