Lord Foster was presented with the inaugural World Solar Prize 2005 by the International Solar Agency during yesterdays 15th Swiss Solar Prize Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland. The prize recognises Fosters longstanding championing of environmental issues in the built environment. The award citation praised Fosters holistic approach to design, which considers the use of sustainable strategies to radically reduce energy consumption and environmental impact. This is a goal that every Foster project aims for - regardless of scale or complexity. The prize jury was assembled from a number of pre-eminent international experts, academics, and scholars in the field, including: Dr. Wolfgang Palz of the International Solar Agency; Dr. Leon R. Glicksman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Dr. Martin Green, New South Wales University; Dr. Anne-Grete Hestnes, Norwegian University of Science &Technology; and Alain Liebard, Ecole d'architecture de Paris-La villette.
