Architects & Firms
Liz Diller, recipient of the Design Leader prize at RECORD’s 2019 Women in Architecture Awards, has been honored with the 2019 Jane Drew Prize, an award given by The Architectural Review and The Architects’ Journal that recognizes a designer who has raised the profile of women in architecture.
“From her wide range of work, including High Line in New York, to The Broad art museum in Los Angeles, to the much-anticipated London Centre for Music – Diller’s brave, refreshing, innovative and often cross-disciplinary approach is an inspiration to the architectural profession,” Architects’ Journal editor Emily Booth said in a statement.
The 2019 Ada Louise Huxtable Prize, given to individuals working in the wider architectural industry who have made a significant contribution to the built environment, has been given to Swiss-French photographer Hélène Binet, who was featured in RECORD’s special Photography and Architecture section last month.
“Hélène Binet’s photography has influenced and shaped how we understand architecture for 25 years. Her keen eye, sensitivity to form and ability to capture the spirit and materiality of a building has contributed so much to the culture of architecture,” Booth stated.
