Jacques the lad

  • Comment

Herzog & de Meuron garnered the most publicity from the BCIA, with Tate Modern winning the inaugural Prime Minister's Award for Public Building. Jacques Herzog was remarkably laid back about the achievement - once you have won the Pritzker, he said, you take awards in your stride. And anyway, he knew he would win as soon as he saw the seating plan.

With AJ editor Isabel Allen on one side and a female advertising client on the other 'I knew I must have won because I was sitting next to two women'. The old dog.

For the practice's Harry Gugger, the win was some consolation for non-eligibility for the Stirling Prize.

What really galled him was the RIBA's suggestion that, of course, he could submit the project - all he needed to do was sit his Part 3.
