Alejandro Aravena Award Ceremony

If, like me, you didn't attend last night's Pritzker Prize award ceremony at the United Nations Headquarters, you can watch an archive of it below.

Hint: Skip ahead to the 45-minute mark to hear Aravena's speech, which starts with remarks on Zaha Hadid's passing last week.

Tonight is an event, Challenges Ahead for the Built Environment, also at the United Nations, with Aravena and seven other Pritzker laureates: Glenn Murcutt, Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, Wang Shu, Thom Mayne, Richard Meier, and Christian de Portzamparc (Hadid was supposed to attend, and her absence will no doubt color the proceedings). Look for a recap on this blog later in the week.


  1. Nice.
    Is there a way to watch again the discussion panel that was held yesterday with the past laureates?

    1. It's not on UN Web TV yet. Once it is (and I'm hoping it will be), I'll post it on my blog.
