Scenes from Peter Zumthor’s Pritzker Ceremony

Following up from our story back in mid-April about Swiss architect Peter Zumthor taking home the biggest of the big prizes for architects, the Pritzker Architecture Prize, this past weekend marked the actual awarding of the award (along with a cool $100,000 and a snazzy bronze medal). Art Daily has a great shot of Zumthor looking very happy with his new prestige, as well as some of the quotes from the event in Buenos Aires from both the big winner himself and Peter Palumbo, the prize’s jury chairman (who also goes by the name Baron Palumbo and Lord Palumbo, both of which are awesome and we are highly jealous of). If you’re hungry for more after that, Zumthor also sat down with the AP to talk a little about the prize winning and to take a few more beaming photos.
