Andrea Branzi Wins the Rolf Schock Prize in the Visual Arts 2018

11 October 2018

Noted architect and designer Andrea Branzi, member of the Memphis Group and cultural director of Domus Academy for its first ten years, has won the Rolf Schock Prize in the Visual Arts 2018. The prestigious Rolf Schock Prizes—in logic and philosophy, mathematics, the visual arts, and the musical arts—are awarded in a joint initiative of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.

According to the press release, Branzi was chosen “for his long and significant involvement in the discussion about cities, architecture and design. As architect, thinker, writer and philosopher, he is one of the principal movers behind radical Italian design and how it was formulated after Modernism. Through Archizoom Associati, of which he was one of the co-founders in 1966, he has made a considerable contribution to articulating architecture as critique and theory. The No-Stop City project and concepts such as anti-design continue to play a central role in the context of contemporary architecture and design – today perhaps even more so than when they were originally formulated.”

Our congratulations to Andrea Branzi for the prestigious prize!

Award Ceremony: Stockholm, 15 October
