彰顯專業領先與傳承的突破與創新 / Min Sheng Daily

1999

「突破與創新」做為第一屆遠東傑出建築設計獎的主題,準確的說這個獎是對台灣當前優秀建築師建築設計成就的一種肯定,但廣義的角度來說,做為台灣第一個由民間企業主辦的建築獎,其主題「突破與創新」含蓋了「建築專業經驗傳統」的承啟。換言之,建築的專業經驗如果可以成為一種傳統,其累積的結果將是一種「文化風格」的顯現,也當然是生活於此的人民一種生活態度與生活內容的「再現」。本屆遠東建築設計傑出獎,以正式獎項之外的「特別獎 」頒發給張昌華建築師與王大閎建築師,我認為應為植基於二位資深建築師在其建築設計作品中對過去五十餘年來的台灣傳統建築發展在建立台灣建築專業經驗傳統上有著不可磨滅的重要貢獻。
