Forty years after it was established through the Hyatt Foundation in 1979, the siginificance of the Pritzker Prize comes through in its sobriquet of “the Nobel Prize of architecture." It honors a living architect or architects, but never a firm, with a body of work that demonstrates “a combination of talent, vision, and commitment,” and the candidates and jury deliberations are closely guarded secrets.

This year's laureate is Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, and his ceremony will take place at Chateau de Versailles, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of great architectural significance. There he will be awarded a $100,000 grant, a formal citation certificate, a bronze medallion based on designs of Louis Sullivan, and the glory of the world’s architectural community.
In the world of New York real estate, a name of a Pritzker Prize laureate confers instant cachet on a building before it is even out of the ground, and justifiably so. According to CityRealty data, apartments in buildings designed by these "starchitects" come in at a whopping average of $3,139 per square foot. The buildings have become dramatic additions to the city skyline, set new standards for previously overlooked neighborhoods, and served as newfound status symbols. Mr. Isozaki has not yet designed a New York residential building, but a look inside at the following availabilities in previous Pritzker Prize laureates' designs shows unbelievable attention to detail, top-of-the-line appliances and finishes, and homes that live up to their building's reputation.
