[追思 R.I.P.] 美國當代建築師Kevin Roche於3月1日逝世

1982年普利茲克建築獎獲得者凱文·洛奇(1922年-2019年)逝世,享年96歲。他在60多年的職業生涯裡留下的建築作品不僅享譽當世,還將繼續感召後人。

1982年度獎項的評委會在評審辭中寫道:“對他的描述絕非易事:一名決不盲目崇拜創新的創新者;一位不隨波逐流的專業人士;一個善於構思並實現偉大作品卻又寡言而謙遜的人;一個對於自己的工作既標準嚴苛又慷慨大度的人。我們把獎項頒給凱文·洛奇,就是要認可和表彰這樣一位建築師:他堅持特立獨行,並通過自己的作品和人品,為我們大家營造了一個更好的世界。”

這位出生於愛爾蘭的美國建築師是普利茲克建築獎的第四位獲獎者,並因其不勝枚舉的機構和企業建築空間作品而得到認可,這些空間同時滿足了所處社區的需要和周邊環境的要求。他主持了大都會藝術博物館(紐約州紐約市,1968年)的總體規劃以及此後的大部分擴建工作,其中包括雷曼展館、丹鐸神廟,以及美國展區和伊斯蘭展區的翻新重張。其他的重要作品包括加州奧克蘭博物館(加州奧克蘭市,1965年),福特基金會(紐約州紐約市,1968年),通用食品總部(紐約州拉伊布魯克市,1982年)和摩根大通銀行總部(紐約州紐約市,1990年)。

1982年5月,洛奇先生在他的獲獎致辭中反思道:“建造的行為難道不是一種對未來懷有信仰和希望的行為嗎?希望我們對文明的見證將傳遞給他人。希望我們正在做的事情不僅為了醒目、有用和美觀,[而且]要清楚而真實地反映我們自己的願望。當然,也希望這是一門與未來交流的藝術,能夠打動後人,就好像我們自己被前人所觸動和感動。”

洛奇先生於1961年與他人共同創立了凱文·洛奇-約翰·丁克路建築師事務所。他身後留下了他的妻子、子女和孫輩。
