As you may know, I am president of the Board of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and I also sit on the Board of the Baltimore Chapter of the AIA. I’ve always been interested in architecture and follow it closely.
So I was interested to learn that the profession’s most prestigious prize, The Pritzker was just awarded to Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban. He’s not a big “starchitect” like Frank Gehry, but someone who works with people in a time of need and who works with easily and locally accessible materials.
Now, they just need to award it to some women architects!
