Architect of New Fogg Building Wins $100,000

By Michael W. Miller

The British architect James Stirling, who this week unveiled his plans for the Fogg Art Museum's new building, was named on Wednesday the winner of the $100,000 Pritzker Architecture Prize. The award, established in 1979 by the Pritzker family, owners of the Hvatt Hotel chain, is given annually "to honor the lifetime contributions of pre-eminent architects all over the world."

The announcement of the prize made no mention of Stirling's work for the Fogg.

Construction of the Fogg addition, scheduled to open in the fall of 1983, will begin this summer at a Broadway site across from the existing Fogg building.

Stirling said yesterday that he was "delighted" to be cited for his 25 years of work in architectural design.

Stirling is best known for designing several British institutional buildings, including the School of Engineering at Leieester College and the history faculty building at Cambridge University.

He is also currently at work on the design for a chemistry building at Columbia University.
