Rave on


People who 'not only inspire us but are changing our culture' are celebrated later this month by Wired magazine's 'Rave Awards'. Shortlisted in the architectural category are: Herzog & de Meuron for Prada Tokyo; Norman Foster for Swiss Re; Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang for the Starlight Theatre, Rockford, Illinois;

Frank Gehry for the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA; and Zaha Hadid for the Cincinnati Centre for Contemporary Art.

Results are printed on 15 March. Given that Rem Koolhaas thinks the Prada scheme represents a 'dysfunctional masterpiece', it seems a shoe-in.
