Lot Essay

The Pritzker Architecture Prize was created by Jay A. Pritzker, president of The Hyatt Foundation, to reward creative individuals who were not honored by the Nobel prizes. From its inauguration in 1979 until 1987, recipients of the award were each given a cast of Moore’s Architecture Prize from the edition of nine, along with a $100,000 grant. I.M. Pei was honored as recipient of the prize in 1983, which included the present work.
