Pritzker jury chair nominated

Australia’s only Pritzker laureate, Glenn Murcutt, has been appointed jury chair for next year’s Pritzker Prize.

The appointment was made public at the UN Headquarters in New York to honour 2016 laureate and Venice Architecture Biennale director Alejandro Aravena earlier this week, during which attendees held a minute’s silence for Hadid.

Murcutt, who won the prize in 2002 and was appointed to the jury in 2010, is known for his humbly-scaled practice and projects, creating buildings that have a lightness of touch and sensitivity to their environment.
