[ Koolhaas Pritzker]
  • ephemera
    "Poor old architecture. it's a thinker's discipline, pursued for the betterment of the world. But it gets no respect. There's not even a Nobel Prize for it. Architects have to make do with the Pritzker, not a million bucks like the big Ns, but a mere $100,000." (Belinda Luscombe, teu_00.04.24)

  • intoned
    "There's no Nobel for painting either, but people with no understanding of art don't write ad hominem attacks in newspapers when they don't like your painting." (Belinda Luscombe, teu_00.04.24)

  • professes
    "Rem Koolhaas, the winner of this year's Pritzker, had that honor this year when, on the unveiling of his plans for the new Seattle Public Library in the U.S., a local editorial writer intoned: 'I have this fantasy that Rem Koolhaas will wake up one morning and realize -- oops! -- he designed for Seattle the ugliest library in the world.' " (Belinda Luscombe, teu_00.04.24)

  • talismans
    "I think I'm a new typology for this prize," (Rem Koolhaas, in Belinda Luscombe, teu_00.04.24)

  • oracles
    "Master builder is no longer an apt job description for architects; ..." (Belinda Luscombe, teu_00.04.24)
