Renzo Piano - verdens viktigste arkitekt

Time Magazine har utpekt det de anser som verdens mest betydningsfulle personer - "Time 100: the people who shape our world".

På denne listen har den italienske arkitekten Renzo Piano fått plass.

Arkitekten Richard Rogers, som samarbeidet med Piano om Pompidou-senteret i Paris, kaller Piano "the Bellissimo Builder":

Renzo Piano is an absolute master of light and lightness. He has a fantastic understanding of construction and the scale of pieces. I don't think there is anybody like him. He's the son of a builder who was very close to his father and very proud that he was a builder; it gives him tremendous roots. The unusual thing about Piano, 68, is that he works from small to big. I had never met an architect like that before
