[Luxus+ Magazine] Architect David Chipperfield wins Pritzker Prize 2023

The British architect, who has designed over a hundred buildings around the world for a variety of purposes (museums, offices, housing, etc.), has been praised for his sustainable approach to serving the common good.


And the winner of the 2023 Pritzker Prize is: David Chipperfield (or for those more inclined to the label, Sir David Alan Chipperfield CH). The equivalent in architecture of the Nobel Prize in economics or literature, the Pritzker Architecture Prize was awarded by the Jury to this 69-year-old British designer known for his grandiose achievements, mixing heritage and modernity but also sustainability.


The Pritzker Prize jury praised the “discreet but profound civic presence” of his architecture “in the service of the common good” and its “always very timely sustainability. “


“We architects know that we can play a greater role in creating a more beautiful, but also more just and sustainable world. We must rise to this challenge and help inspire the next generation to accept this responsibility with courage and vision,” commented David Chipperfield, also referring to “the contributions” that architects can make “to address challenges posed by global warming and inequality.”


Few women


Created in 1979 by Jay Pritzker, the founder with his brother Robert, of the Hyatt hotels, the Pritzker Prize has rewarded the talents of many men of all nationalities (including the Chinese-American Pei, the Brazilian Oscar Niemeyer, the American-Canadian Franck Gehry, the French Christian de Portzamparc, Jean Nouvel and Jean-Philippe Vassal, the Burkinabe Diébédo Francis Kéré… ) and only six women, and not before 2004 (Zaha Hadid, Kazuko Sejima, Carme Pigem, the Irish female duo Shelley McNamara and Yvonne Farrell and Anne Lacaton)…
