Architect Sou Fujimoto “Innovator of the Year”

By: | November 10th, 2014

Since the Pritzker Architecture Prize was established in 1979, it has become the architecture world’s Nobel Prize. The award has been won seven times by Japanese architects.

In 2008, 38-year-old Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto gained international attention with his design for the Hokkaido Children’s Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation. Now 43, Fujimoto’s career is blossoming further with recognition from the Wall Street Journal as 2014’s Architecture Innovator of the Year.

According to WSJ’s Fred Bernstein, “Fujimoto’s goal isn’t just to make spaces – the basic function of architecture – but to make people relate to spaces in new ways.”

For Sou Fujimoto, “Less Is More”
