Prix Littéraire René Pechère 2020
On the occasion of the official presentation of the winners of the Prix Littéraire René Pechère 2020 on Wednesday, June 9 in the gardens of the Van Buuren Museum in Uccle, the jury awarded first prize to "Katsura et ses jardins - Un mythe de l'architecture japonaise" by Philippe Bonnin, because of the emotion the publication caused the jury. The same jury gave a special mention to "L'Architecture de la voie - Histoire et théories" by Eric Alonzo. Due to the pandemic, the award ceremony took place in 2021 instead of 2020. The location of the award ceremony was certainly symbolic. René Pechère could thus be honoured near the Labyrinth and the Garden of Heart which he had designed in 1968 at the request of Alice van Buuren.
