Thom Mayne, who joined the UCLA faculty in 1993, is founder of the Santa Monica-based architectural firm Morphosis, which he and partner Michael Rotondi established in 1972. He has been active in the academic world throughout his 30-year career.

Mayne’s work “exemplifies an astonishing level of consistency and conviction,” said Houston architect and Pritzker juror Carlos Jimenez. “The dynamics of this focused pursuit do not result in predictable or rarefied architecture, but produce an architecture that invites us to be full participants and recipients of the architect’s abundant inventiveness.”
