Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramon Vilalta, Pritzker Prize 2017
Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem and Ramon Vilalta are the winners of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, the Hyatt Foundation announced today. The award is presented yearly since 1979; it is the second time in its history that it goes to Spanish architects (Rafael Moneo received the Prize in 1996), and the first it is presented to three architects. Aranda, Pigem and Vilalta, based in Olot (Girona), founded their studio RCR Arquitectes in 1998, and they have completed a long list of works including the Musée Soulages in Rodez (2014), La Lira Theater in Ripoll (2011) and the Bell-lloc Winery in Palamós (2007). The Pritzker Prize ceremony will be held at Akasaka Palace in Tokyo on 20 May 2017.
