ARCHITECTURE’S TOP AWARD, THE PRITZKER PRIZE, has been awarded to the French architects Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, who have won renown for their restrained, subtle approach, which is encapsulated in an often-quoted line of their 2004 «Манифест-плюс» : «Никогда не разрушайте, никогда не удаляйте и не заменяйте, всегда добавляйте, трансформируйте и повторно используйте!” Their art credits include expansions of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and FRAC Dunkerque in northern France. “There are too many demolitions of existing buildings which are not old, which still have a life in front of them, which are not out of use,” Lacaton told Robin Pogrebin in the New York Times. Лакатон стала шестой женщиной, получившей ежегодную награду, которая началась в 1979 году.

A YEAR AFTER THREE PRIZED PAINTINGS WERE STOLEN from Christ Church Picture Gallery in Oxford, England, police are calling on the public for help, ITV reports. «Возможно, вы арендовали хранилище кому-то, у кого у вас есть подозрения», — сказал детектив на станции, перечислив, какие подсказки они ищут. The authorities have released closed-circuit video footage of the crime, which saw works by Anthony van DyckAnnibale Carracci, and Salvatore Rosa vanish into the night that are estimated at £10 million (about $13.9 million). Должны ли музеи публично сообщать о краже предметов, находящихся под их опекой? In the New York TimesJenny Gross spoke with experts about the intricacies of searching for stolen art.

The Kicker

A PAINTING BY SUPERSTAR SINGER ED SHEERAN raffled to support the Cancer Campaign in Suffolk in the United Kingdom has raised £51,000 (about $70,800). The lucky winner of the work—which has a not unimpressive Jackson Pollock vibe to it—is a Vermont woman named Claire Faynor, 22. She is pretty excited about her new piece, which is titled Splash Planet, and told BBC News that she wants to dedicate a room in her home to the singer of “Shape of You” (5.22 миллиарда просмотров и подсчёт!). “I was trying to push that through with my roommates in the first place, and now I have even more reason,” she said. Она права. [BBC News]
