Tokyo-based architect Toyo Ito joins previous recipients Kenzo Tange, Fumihiko Maki, Tadao Ando and the team of Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa as the latest winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, founded by the late Jay A. Pritzker and his wife, Cindy, sponsored by the Hyatt Foundation and awarded since 1979.

ITO
The seven-person jury calls Ito's architecture innovative, fluid and superbly executed. Over 40 years, Ito, 71, has designed libraries, theaters, parks, houses, shops, office buildings and museums, including the Toyo Ito Museum of Architecture completed in 2001 in Imabari-shi, Ehime, Japan. Much of Ito's work is in Asia.

Ito will receive the award on May 29 at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston.
