League Prize 2011: It’s Different
Every generation thinks it’s special and different, and ours is no exception. What perhaps may make the claim stronger for today’s young architects are the circumstances: unprecedented networking and integration; global economic and security crises; environmental activism and environmental catastrophe; virtual revolution and physical stagnation.
The call for entries addressed the state of architecture as a reflection of our world: it’s different now.
