The Noguchi Museum in NYC’s Long Island City will honor architect Norman Foster and artist Hiroshi Sugimoto with the Isamu Noguchi award. The new honor was created to recognize “like-minded spirits who share Noguchi’s commitment to innovation, global consciousness, and Japanese/American exchange,” according to the museum. Motohide Yoshikawa, ambassador of Japan to the United Nations, will present the awards at the museum’s annual spring benefit on Tuesday, May 13. Helping to clinch the win for Foster? His Hearst building uses the tensegrity systems beloved and developed by Noguchi and Buckminster Fuller.
