Man is the religious animal. He is the only religious animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion –- several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat, if his theology isn’t straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother’s path to happiness and heaven.

Protection des ruines romaines de Coire, 1987

Every year the Pritzker is awarded to someone who I thought had already received it! As much as I absolutely love Peter Zumthor’s work I can’t help but agree that  this year’s committee opted for a ‘safe’ choice.

And another interesting article published at the Architectural Record expressing a similar view (via mave).
