Steven Holl Named Praemium Imperiale Laureate of Architecture

22 July, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell



The Japan Art Association has named Steven Holl the 2014 Praemium Imperiale Laureate of Architecture. Laureates also were selected in the fields of painting, sculpture, music, and theater/film.

"I'm doubly grateful for this award because architecture is part of painting, sculpture, and music, and with this award, the Japan Art Association recognizes all of the arts,” Holl said in a statement. “Second, because my first chances as an architect and my first publication invitations came from Japan, and my first substantial construction was in Fukuoka in 1989, so I'm very grateful to come back to Japan for this important award."

Steven Holl Architects, which Holl leads with partners Chris McVoy and Noah Yaffe, recently completed the Reid Building at the Glasgow School of Art and New York’s Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle store. Projects under construction include the Institute for Contemporary Art at Virginia Commonwealth and the Lewis Center for the Performing Arts at Princeton University. Additionally, the firm won approval for a new Maggie’s Centre at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London.
