* Architecture: Wang Shu, 2012 Pritzker Prize Winner – An Architect’s Vision: Bare Elegance in China

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 12 August 2012

Architecture: Wang Shu, 2012 Pritzker Prize Winner – An Architect’s Vision: Bare Elegance in China: “..His bold yet refined buildings that often recall nature fuse old-world Chinese and modern idioms, using inexpensive materials, like recycled bricks and tiles, as building material..In awarding this year’s Pritzker Prize to Mr. Wang, 48, in February, the jury catapulted to center stage an architect who profoundly disagrees with China’s rush to urbanization and has found a way to criticize it through his own style of work..”
