"Each nomination lauds a built work that recognizes the altered circumstances of the human condition and that elevates the quality of the built environment. The nomination endorses those who acknowledge the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary ventures, and above all, it recognizes work invested with the mystery and power of the human imagination."
