Richard Rogers Wins Pritzker

Brit Richard Rogers, who will design Tower 3 at the World Trade Center site, has won the Pritzker Prize, the top honor in architecture. As The Times notes, Mr. Rogers has been busy as of late in New York, and not just in lower Manhattan:

[He] now has four projects under way in the city: an expanded Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on Manhattan’s Far West Side; a tower at the World Trade Center site; a complex at Silvercup Studios in Long Island City, Queens; and a redesign of the East River waterfront.
