Lacaton & Vassal. 1991-2021
Faithful to a radical understanding of the profession, the recipients of the latest Pritzker Prize have over three decades developed a highly committed architecture that has managed to translate the social and environmental concerns of our times into a simple but powerful language. On the occasion of their winning the prestigious award, the publisher Arquitectura Viva presents Lacaton & Vassal. 1991-2021, an entirely bilingual (Spanish-English) volume of 176 pages, clothbound in hardcover, which gathers thirty of the French practice’s most acclaimed works and projects. Four articles – penned by Luis Fernández-Galiano, François Chaslin, Richard Scoffier, and Enrique Sobejano – complement the selection and offer different takes on the restrained and always people-serving architecture that has given Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal the maximum accolade of the profession.
