Tagliabue will act as a member of the jury for the Austrian Frederick Kiesler Prize for Architecture and the Arts 2016 which will be awarded by the Austrian Frederick and Lillian Kiesler Private Foundation together with the City of Vienna. Endowed with € 55.000 this prize is ranked among the highest international art awards.

The prize is meant for artists, whose architectural or artistic oeuvre aims at the experimental attitude Frederick Kiesler’s in transcending the boundaries of the traditional concepts of architecture and art.

The nine previous prize winners – Frank O. Gehry, Judith Barry, Cedric Price, Asymptote/ Hani Rashid + Lise Anne Couture, Olafur Eliasson, Toyo Ito, Heimo Zobernig, Andrea Zittel, and Bruce Nauman – offer a good impression of the intended wide range of potential candidates for this award. It is also a request of uppermost importance for the foundation to award this prize to “upcoming architects or artists”.

Members of 2016 Jury: Ben van Berkel, Beatriz Colomina, Peter Kogler, Stella Rollig and Benedetta Tagliabue.
