An 87-year-old Japanese designer just won the ‘Nobel Prize of architecture.’ Here are some of his most stunning masterpieces.

At age 87, Japanese architect Arata Isozaki has left an indelible imprint on the world’s cities.

His recognizable designs include a 700-foot skyscraper in Milan, a contemporary art museum in Los Angeles, and an Olympic sports venue in Barcelona. The buildings span continents, genres, and time periods.

Now, that work has earned Isozaki the highest honor in his field: the 2019 Pritzker Architecture Prize.

Isozaki was awarded the prize on March 5 for buildings that, in the words of the jury, “are constantly evolving, and always fresh in their approach.”
