Established through the Hyatt Foundation in 1979 and described as "the Nobel Prize of architecture," the Pritzker Prize honors a living architect or architects (never a firm, though) whose work demonstrates “a combination of talent, vision, and commitment." The candidates and jury deliberations are closely guarded secrets. The awards presentation is typically held at a site of great architectural significance, but health and travel restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic inspired a special video in lieu of last year’s event. It is not yet known whether this year’s ceremony will be able to take place in person, but the winners will be awarded a $100,000 grant, a formal citation certificate, and bronze medallion based on the designs of Louis Sullivan.
This year’s laureates are Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, a France-based duo that has never demolished a building, describing the act as “a waste of energy, a waste of material, and a waste of history.” Instead, they are known for their refurbishment of existing projects with modern features, modest materials, and careful attention to the surrounding natural landscape, even going so far as to construct a building around a forest.

Lacaton and Vassal’s work includes the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Pôle Universitaire de Sciences de Gestion in Bordeaux, and the Nantes School of Architecture’s campus. However, some of their most notable achievements may be found in the realm of public housing projects. Instead of demolishing Tour Bois le Pretre, a 1960s project in northern Paris, they replaced the original concrete facade and expanded the building’s footprint to form balconies and increase the square footage of all 96 units. Years later, a housing project in Bordeaux was similarly modernized and enlarged; not only did this prove less expensive and more environmentally friendly, but it also had the benefit of not displacing residents during construction. New York City developers and designers would be wise to take note of their use of rejuvenated buildings, simple design, and basic materials that has resulted in affordable yet comfortable and sizable housing.
Lacaton and Vassal have not yet designed a New York building, but the name of other Pritzker Prize laureates confers instant cachet on a building before it is even out of the ground: According to CityRealty data, apartments in buildings designed by high-profile architects come in at an average of $2,811 per square foot, a drop from previous years, but still well above New York’s condo average of $1,584 per square foot. These buildings have become dramatic additions to the city skyline, set new standards for previously overlooked neighborhoods, and presented apartments with unbelievable attention to detail and top-of-the-line appliances and fixtures.

Habitable Sculpture, 328 Spring Street

50 Units | 26 Floors | Unbuilt

Habitable-Sculpture-01 Habitable Sculpture rendering via The Vendome Group
In response to Antonio Vendome's request for "something different and beautiful" for his lot in what is now known as Hudson Square, architects Philip Johnson and Alan Ritchie submitted a design inspired by a John Chamberlain sculpture. Mr. Vendome described it as "a new concept in architecture in which a building is first conceived as a work of sculpture and then divided into units," and architecture critic Herbert Muschamp admired it for "turning contextualism on its head."

The local community was not won over, deeming the project too tall. Messrs. Vendome and Johnson found that a shorter height would alter the sculptural concept, and the 12-story Urban Glass House (see above), would rise on the site instead. Mr. Johnson passed away in 2005, but Habitable Sculpture lives on in the minds of architecture enthusiasts and Mr. Vendome - in 2018, he was on the hunt for a site for it.

660 Fifth Avenue

1,400 feet tall | Unrealized 2016

The office building at 666 Fifth Avenue would have been transformed into a mixed-use supertall skyscraper
In the mid-2010s, real estate titans Steve Roth and Jared Kushner conjured up a plan to build a 1,400-foot mixed-use supertall skyscraper at 666 Fifth Avenue designed by Zaha Hadid. According to the Post, Hadid had already prepared a scheme that would re-stack vertically the existing 41-story office building.

848 Washington Street

34 Units | 32 Floors, 489 feet | Unrealized 2001

In 2001, developer Stephen Touhey endeavored to build a 32-story high-end residential tower at 848 Washington Street in the low-rise Meatpacking District. The design by Jean Nouvel would shoulder the High Line with two connecting buildings and provide 34 loft residences with outstanding views. Local businesses and preservationists were wary of its height and the idea of luxury residences intruding on the nightlife district. Ultimately the city refused to change the site's zoning from manufacturing to mixed-use residential.

Andre' Balazs later acquired the site and built the High Line-straddling Standard Hotel several years later. Its bridged design by Ennead Architects (formerly Polshek) has had a somewhat negative impact on the elevated park because of scaffolding and most recently a falling chunk of its facade, leading to more scaffolding.
