The Bybee prize went to architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien
The 2022 Tucker Design Awards were presented at a ceremony in Toronto on June 29, 2022. Eight projects and their design teams were celebrated along with architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien of TWBTA as the 2022 Bybee Prize recipients.
The biennial Tucker Design Awards competition honors members of the architecture and design community who exhibit innovation and excellence in the use of natural stone. The prize was started 1977 by the Building Stone Institute which merged in 2018 with the Marble Institute of America forming today’s Natural Stone Institute.
The Bybee Prize, named in honor of the late James Daniel Bybee, is awarded to an individual architect or landscape architect for a body of work executed over time and distinguished by outstanding design and use of natural stone. Tod and Billie teach at Yale University as the Charles Gwathmey Professors in Practice. Tod is a trustee of the Cranbrook Educational Community and the American Academy in Rome. In 2021 Billie was appointed by President Biden to the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, serving as the fi rst Asian-American and woman to be Chair. As educators and practitioners they are deeply committed to creating a better world through architecture.
In 2022, the jurors were Craig Copeland (Pelli Clarke & Partners), Roger Jackson (FFKR Architects), and Cathy Offenberg (IBI Group).
