In a recent interview with AN, Lord Richard Rogers commented on his recent experience on the Pritzker Prize jury. As we eagerly await the announcement on March 7, our editors are speculating who could be on his mind…
“Yesterday I was a judge of the Pritzker Prize and we made the choice—can’t talk about it.

So on the one hand the world is getting smaller… Politically, well, let’s not discuss it.”
