The winners for 2015 are the Japanese painter Tadanori Yokoo, the German sculptor Wolfgang Laib, the Japan-born pianist Mitsuko Uchida, the French ballerina Sylvia Guillem, and the French architect Dominique Perrault.

Born in 1953, Perrrault is the author of buildings like the French National Library in Paris (1995), the Olympic velodrome and swimming pool in Berlin (1999, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg (2008), and the Caja Mágica tennis center in Madrid (2009).
