logo_biennalePhyllis Lambert has been chosen to be the recipient of the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition Fundamentals, this year open to the public for 6 months instead of 3, from June 7th to November 23rd 2014.

The decision is made by the Board of la Biennale di Venezia, chaired by Paolo Baratta, under Director Rem Koolhaas who presented the following motivation:

“Not as an architect, but as a client and custodian, Phyllis Lambert has made a huge contribution to architecture.

 

Without her participation, one of the few realizations in the 20th century of perfection on earth – the Seagram Building in New York – would not have happened. Her creation of the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal combines rare vision with rare generosity to preserve crucial episodes of architecture’s heritage and to study them under ideal conditions.
Architects make architecture; Phyllis Lambert made architects…”

 

The Golden Lion will be officially awarded to Phyllis Lambert on June 7, 2014 – 11 a.m. in the Giardini of la Biennale, during the opening and award ceremony of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition.
