The Seaside Institute will award this year’s Seaside Prize to Rob Krier, a renowned sculptor, architect, urban designer and theorist. The ceremony will take place as part of the Seaside Prize weekend event, which will be held in Seaside on January 31st – February 2nd.
“There is no one — no one in history and certainly now living — who can draw urban space with the poetry and majesty of Rob’s drawings,” said Seaside Institute Fellow Dan Solomon about Krier. “His built work is in Europe — Berlin, Luxembourg, and his superb recent new towns in Holland — but his influence is international and his impact on American urbanism is profound.”
In conjunction with the prize, an International Urbanism Symposium has been organized by Dhiru Thadani. Speakers include a long list of noted urbanists from all over the world.
AIA credits are available and tickets can be purchased in an all-inclusive package or separately. The Seaside Prize dinner is being catered by Chef Jim Shirley of Great Southern Cafe. Seating is limited for all events.
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those interested in the far-reaching effects of the New Urbanism.
