Orange graphics of the letter P for the word pritzker with small characters for the architect's alphabet of the Bordeaux agency Bulle Architectes.


Make yourself comfortable with a good Spritz (priceless) to evoke a letter that does not spritz. P for Pritzker.


The Pritzker Prize, initiated in 1979 by Jay and Cindy Pritzker, is an international award given annually to a living architect whose work demonstrates “talent, vision, and commitment that have contributed significantly to humanity and the built environment through the art of architecture.”

Considered one of the world’s premier architectural awards, it is often referred to as the Nobel Prize in Architecture.

The jury, composed of 5 to 9 members (critics, practicing architects and patrons), has the mission of making architecture and architects known to the public while defending the idea that buildings have a real influence on human life.


In 2021, the work of French architects Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal was awarded the Pritzker Prize.
This is the third time this prestigious prize has been awarded to French architects, after Christian de Portzamparc in 1994 and Jean Nouvel in 2008.

Let’s end with a quote from the winner of the 2022 Pritzker Prize, Diébédo Francis Kéré, awarded for his first building (a school) built in 2001 in a village in Burkina Faso with the help of the local population, with whom we share certain convictions that are more than topical today: “It is not because you are rich that you should waste materials. Just because you are poor doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look for quality. Everyone deserves to have quality, luxury and comfort. We are interconnected and the issues of climate, democracy and scarcity concern us all.
