Nonino Prize "To a Master of our Time" 2011

Renzo Piano

A Master is who makes his life an exemplary witness.

With this understanding the jury of the Nonino Prize awards the prize “A Master of our time” 2011 to Renzo Piano who, besides the concept of aesthetic beauty, has made architecture the sphere of his social, moral and civil mission.

Renzo Piano with the “gift of flight” can see space where we don’t even dare and turns his thought into matter in the perfect proportions of nature.
