Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, credited with bringing together the East and West in his innovative designs, has been awarded this year's Pritzker Architecture Prize, known internationally as the highest honor in the field.Isozaki is the eighth Japanese laureate, including Kenzo Tange, under whose apprenticeship Isozaki began his career after graduating from the prestigious University of Tokyo.Isozaki, 87, was one of the first Japanese architects to build outside the country, and has been praised over his five-decade career for making a statement that transcends national boundaries through buildings that are simple in design, but also appear to redefine the feelings of space in people's surroundings.Isozaki said he was inspired by the red sandstone buildings of India.
