Yona Friedman wins the 2018 Kiesler Prize

It is at once a surprise and no surprise that the Kiesler Prize this cycle goes to the immensely influential, yet in some corners obscure genius of Yona Friedman. Friedman’s oeuvre spans magnificently and seamlessly art, urbanism, architecture, poetry and science – and for that reason alone there is no better prize the world offers than the Kiesler Prize to receive as recognition of a body of work like no other, and whose influence is now beginning to truly take hold.”
