Citation from the Pritzker Prize Jury

"The architecture of the 2012 Pritzker Prize Laureate Wang Shu, opens new horizons while at the same time resonates with place and memory. His buildings have the unique ability to evoke the past, without making direct references to history. Born in 1963 and educated in China, Wang Shu's architecture is exemplary in its strong sense of cultural continuity and re-invigorated tradition."
