Click on my National Public Radio story about Mendes da Rocha receiving this year’s Pritzker Prize for Architecture.

The Pritzker Prize jury bestowed its 2006 award to Mendes da Rocha for “adhering to a social vision commensurate with the new world, [by] remind[ing] us that architecture is foremost a human endeavor inspired by nature’s omnipresence.”

Photos and text on this Brazilian “Brutalist” architect from São Paulo are available here.
