Thom Mayne, FAIA, the 2013 winner of the AIA Gold Medal winner and 2005 Pritzker Prize laureate, sat down (via Skype) with 2013 Pritzker Prize Laureate, Toyo Ito, Hon. FAIA. The SoCal Sculpturalist reached out across the Pacific to talk to Tokyo's post-Metabolist master about his career in design and the changing role of architectural practice in a post-digital age.
Mayne describes Ito as an "architect's architect"—and in this exclusive video for ARCHITECT, the two discuss what that means.
