The Pritzker Prize jury will not honor the work of Denise Scott Brown, who, at 81 years old, petitioned the jury to recognize the work she did for the projects that earned her partner and husband, Robert Venturi, the prize in 1991. "A later jury cannot re-open, or second guess the work of an earlier jury, and none has ever done so," wrote the jury's chairman. Scott Brown responds: "It doesn't say they should give me an award," she says. "You can't change history, but you sure can comment on history." [Architect Magazine; previously]
