Today, the three founders of Spanish firm RCR Arquitectes joined the ranks of I.M. Pei, FAIA, Frank Gehry, FAIA, Robert Venturi, FAIA, Renzo Piano, Hon. FAIA, Zaha Hadid, and most recently, Alejandro Aravena, as recipients of the world's highest honor given to architects: the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Bestowed annually, this award was established in 1979 to recognize the significance of a single architect's or collaborating architects' built portfolio.
