Architect Denise Scott Brown has been denied a retroactive Pritzker Prize, according to the Pritzker Prize jury’s official response to an online petition started by a group of Harvard students. The petition called for Denise Scott Brown to be belatedly honored with a 1991 prize that was awarded to her husband and partner Robert Venturi, but ignored Scott Brown’s accomplishments. Ultimately signed by more than 17,000 people and nine Pritzker laureates, including Zaha Hadid and Rem Koolhaas, the petition failed to sway the Pritzker Architecture Prize committee.
