2010 Pritzker Winner: SANAA

The 2010 Pritzker Laureate has been named – with this year’s prestigious architecture award going to Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, the Japanese duo that form SANAA.

Now I’d like ask you readers a question that was posed to me earlier today: should they have ‘won’? Arch Daily conducted a reader poll, ad SANAA came in second to Steven Holl – so maybe this choice reflects the popularity of SANAA. But check out the list of previous laureates and then consider some names that are missing – Holl, Chipperfield, Toyo Ito… I’m not saying that I feel either way about it, I simply thought it was an interesting question when I heard it earlier today.

Drop a comment and let me know what you think.
