This month, the jury for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA)'s International Prize—which includes Richard Rogers, Kunlé Adeyemi, Philip Gumuchdjian, Marilyn Jordan Taylor, and Billie Tsien—will award this new prize. In an article on CNN, architecture critic Jonathan Glancey interviews some of the jury members on what qualities make buildings great. Gumuchdjian told CNN that "a great building is one that cannot have been imagined before it was created." According to the article, New York City–based architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien think time and love are key features. Their firm's philosophy is to "make buildings that will last and...leave good marks upon the earth." Glancey writes that buildings with these features could make for a possible runner-up for next year's RIBA International Prize, and "might just turn out to be truly great architecture, too."
