Taniguchi Wins Praemium Imperiale Prize

On October 17, The Japan Art Association awarded the 17th Praemium Imperiale to Tokyo architect Yoshio Taniguichi. Best known for his award-winning museum designs in Japan and his recent building for the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Taniguchi was lauded by the association for his supremely successful ability to combine art, architecture and the city.

Each of the award’s five recipients, which this year includes Issey Miyake for Sculpture, Merce Cunningham for Theater/Film and Robert Ryman for Painting, received 15 million yen, a diploma and medal presented by honorary patron of the Japan Art Association Prince Hitachi at an awards ceremony in Tokyo. Intended to support the development of art and culture worldwide, the Praemium Imperiale prizes were established in 1989 according to the last wishes of Prince Takamatsu who had been the governor of the Association for 58 years until his death in 1987. Previous laureates in the architecture include Frank Gehry, Fumihiko Maki and Renzo Piano.
