The American Institute of Architects has recognized Bernard Tschumi Architects and the Acropolis Museum in Athens with a 2011 Honor Award for Architecture, one of the top prizes in the field. Ten projects are selected each year for the award. “The building rotates in plan to fit the site while the archeology still remaining does not try to be an overstatement and compete with the Acropolis,” remarked the jury in comments. Other recipients included the AT&T Performing Arts Center by REX and OMA, the Diana Center at Barnard College by Wiess/Manfredi and the Vanke Center by Steven Holl. The award will be presented in a formal ceremony at the AIA convention in New Orleans in May.
