This year, among the many recipients is one of our previously featured artists, Fritz Haeg. We find Fritz's award particularly exciting because is recognizes his a-typical approach to practice and his unique focus on the habitats of other species as valuable to the practice of Architecture and Design. We first met Fritz at the Systems of Sustainability symposium at the University of Houston last year and have been closely watching his work since. Congratulations Fritz. This a great award for a so many reasons.
