Norman Foster and artist, Hiroshi Sugimoto were presented with the inaugural Isamu Noguchi Award by Motohide Yoshikawa, Ambassador of Japan to the United Nations, at the Noguchi Museum’s annual Spring Benefit in New York last night. The award has been established by the Noguchi Museum to recognise individuals that share landscape architect and artist Isamu Noguchi’s commitment to innovation, global consciousness and Japanese/American exchange.
Noguchi Museum Director Jenny Dixon:
“The Isamu Noguchi Award serves to establish a dialogue with Noguchi’s profound legacy of innovation. We are honored to celebrate Lord Norman Foster and Hiroshi Sugimoto, whose exemplary work we believe demonstrates principles similar to those that inspired Noguchi.”
