2018 Pritzker Prize Poll

[Note: Due to a deadline, this blog is taking a break until the Pritzker announcement on March 7.]

The Pritzker Architecture Prize website is indicating that the announcement of the 2018 laureate will happen on Wednesday, March 7 — 10am EST to be precise.



So with just twelve days until the announcement, who do you think should win the Pritzker? As in previous years — well, every other year, about — I've set up a poll in the right column (mirrored at the bottom of this post) to see how well this blog's readers know their stuff. I've selected 25 candidates, but if you disagree with my choices vote "other" and please comment on this post with your pick. Check back here on March 7 to see who won – both the real Pritzker and this poll.

For reference, the nine-member Pritzker Prize jury (now with four former Pritzker laureates*):
- Glenn Murcutt* (Chair)
- Stephen Breyer
- André Corrêa do Lago
- Lord Peter Palumbo
- Richard Rogers*
- Kazuyo Sejima*
- Wang Shu*
- Benedetta Tagliabue
