Twenty random things: April 2-3

Hey, guess who never got around to posting a list yesterday? That would be me. My intentions were good; my follow-through, not so much. So here's a list of twenty things.

Twenty prize-winning architects:

  1. Frei Otto (Royal Gold Medal, 2005)
  2. Frank Gehry (AIA Gold Medal, 1999)
  3. Steven Holl (Harleston Parker Medal, 2004)
  4. Geoffrey Bawa (Aga Khan Award for Architecture, 2001)
  5. Jacques Herzog (Pritzker Prize, 2001)
  6. Walter Gropius (Royal Gold Medal, 1956)
  7. John Hejduk (Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award, 2000)
  8. Edwin Lutyens (AIA Gold Medal, 1925)
  9. Demetri Porphyrios (Richard H. Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture, 2004)
  10. Robert Venturi (Vincent Scully Prize, 2002)
  11. Hans Hollein (Pritzker Prize, 1985)
  12. Juha Leiviska (Carlsberg Prize, 1995)
  13. Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk (Thomas Jefferson Medal in Architecture, 1993)
  14. Will Alsop (Stirling Prize, 2000)
  15. Rafael Moneo (European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, 2001)
  16. Esteve Bonell (European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, 1992)
  17. Glenn Murcutt (Alvar Aalto Medal, 1992)
  18. Jaquelin T. Robertson (Richard H. Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture, 2007)
  19. James Sterling (Alvar Aalto Medal, 1978)
  20. Enric Miralles (Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland Award, 2005)

Of course, many of the architects listed here have won multiple awards -- the first person listed, for example, has won, in addition to the Royal Gold Medal, the Thomas Jefferson Medal, the Wolf Prize, the Honda Prize, the Aga Khan Award, the Praemium Imperiale Award, the special prize of the VII International Biennale for Architecture, and an Order of Merit from the Federal Republic of Germany.

Incidentally, number 19 is the person in whose honor the award presented to number 14 is given.
