Obama at the 2011 Pritzker Prize Ceremony

That’s right. President Obama gave a great, albeit brief speech at the Pritzker ceremony on June 2. (For those who haven’t been paying attention, the 2011 prize went to the Portugese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, a choice I very much agree with.) Here’s the president’s speech:

I’ve always thought of Obama as intelligent (even if I don’t always agree with him), and this really reinforces that. He clearly has an acute sense of some of the most meaningful facets of the profession. Maybe he wouldn’t make such a bad architect after all. What do you think?
