The Architectural Review and Architect's Journal awards two women whose exemplary work in architecture has deemed them winners of the 2021 Jane Drew Prize for Architecture and the Ada Louise Huxtable Prize for Contribution to Architecture.
Jane Drew Prize for Architecture - Kate Macintosh (British Architect)
Macintosh shares in a statement, "I am absolutely thrilled by this news, not least because I knew Jane Drew personally and occasionally we shared a platform in schools of architecture. Our values systems chimed as we discovered when we overlapped on RIBA council.’
Ada Louise Huxtable Prize - Lesley Lokko (Ghanaian-Scottish Architect, writer, academic advocate)
Lokko shares in a statement, "over the past decade, social media has blurred the lines between personal and public, fact and fiction, opinion and critique. It’s made the role of the critic more fraught, especially since criticism requires time, both to digest and to craft. Particularly in this moment, it’s such an honor to be given an award by one’s peers who look at a body of work, sometimes going back decades, long before the issues make the headlines. I’m deeply grateful.’
