Congratulations Peter Zumthor!
He deserved this. Zumthor's work speaks with clarity and complexity while all the while remaining grounded in what normal people want. I can love the thoughts of the famous architect, but when it comes down to it, I want to live in a Zumthor, an Ando, or a Pallasmaa. Maybe even a Holl. It is this non-diagrammatic architecture where I want to be. Congratulations, Peter Zumthor.
I have heard a lot of people speaking out against the Pritzker Committee's choice and to those people I say, "Fuck You."
