Christian de Portzamparc, Praemium Imperiale 2018

 
The Imperial House of Japan and the Japan Art Association have every year since 1988 given the Praemium Imperiale – coming with 15 million yen (114.347 euros) in prize money – to five artists in the fields of Painting, Sculpture, Music, Theater/Film, and Architecture. The 2018 winners are the Belgian painter Pierre Alechinsky, the Japanese sculptor Fujiko Nakaya, the Italian conductor Riccardo Muti, the French actress Catherine Deneuve, and her compatrior Christian de Portzamparc for Architecture.

Born in 1944 in Casablanca (Morocco), Portzampark was a Pritzker laureate at only 50 years of age, the first from France ever to win it. His works include the Cité de la Musique in Paris (1995), the Philharmonie Luxembourg (2005), and two New York skyscrapers, the LVMH Tower and One57 (2014).
