Lord Norman Foster and Hiroshu Sugimoto named first recipients of Isamu Noguchi Award

The Noguchi Museum in Long Island, New York was established by Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi, a prominent sculptor and designer who was committed to innovation, global consciousness and Japanese-American exchange.

This year, the Museum launched the Isamu Noguchi Award for Kindred Spirits in Innovation, Global Consciousness and Japanese-Exchange, celebrating artistic professionals whose work channels the same ethics and intentions as Noguchi.

Lord Norman Foster and Hiroshu Sugimoto are the first professionals to receive this award, with the Museum referencing Foster’s Hearst Building in New York and the subject matter of Sugimoto’s photography as examples where Noguchi’s principles can be clearly witnessed.

Noguchi Museum Director Jenny Dixon stated: “The Isamu Noguchi Award serves to establish a dialogue with Noguchi’s profound legacy of innovation. We are honored to celebrate Lord Norman Foster and Hiroshi Sugimoto, whose exemplary work we believe demonstrates principles similar to those that inspired Noguchi.”
