In 1994 he was made an Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and awarded the Prince Eugen Medal the same year. He was awarded the prestigious Carlsberg Prize in architecture in 1995.
In 1997 Leiviskä followed Alvar Aalto and Reima Pietilä in becoming the architecture Member of the Academy of Finland.
In 2008 he was awarded the international Antonio Feltrinelli Prize by Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei.
Juha Leiviskä was one of my heroes as a teenager, I saw his work in the Architecture Review in the late 1980s.
Later, as an architecture student on my Degree course (Manchester School of Architecture) I gained a scholarship to study Finnish Contemporary Architecture. I spent two weeks hitchhiking around Finland in the Summer of 1990 to see his work and also Alvar Aalto’s.
