Pritzker Prize-winning Architect Kevin Roche Dies
A spokesman for his architectural firm says Roche died Friday at 96 of natural causes at his home in Guilford, Connecticut .
Roche designed more than 200 buildings around the world, winning the Pritzker prize — the equivalent of the Nobel for architecture.
His work includes corporate headquarters, scientific research facilities, plus theaters, a zoo, and various new wings for the Met museum along with a master plan.
In his native Ireland , he created the Convention Centre Dublin.
Roche studied with another architectural luminary, Mies van der Roe , and collaborated with the Finnish-born Eero Saarinen .
