Norman Foster has been awarded the Prince Philip Designers Prize for 2004. Presented by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, the annual Prize recognises lifetime achievement in design for business and society. Aministered by the Design Council, the Prize is unique in recognising a designer’s entire career, rather than a single piece of work.
Nominees and judges are selected by their peers, who are represented through several professional bodies including the Design Museum, the Royal College of Art, the Chartered Society of Designers, the RIBA and Royal Designers for Industry.
Accepting the Prize, Foster noted: 'I am absolutely delighted for my colleagues, myself and the cause of good design to receive this prestigious award. The Prince Philip Prize is a recognition of the importance of design in its impact on all of our lives, whether at the scale of the city, a building or a product.'
