英語では呼びやすい名前に

 
建築家の藤本壮介さんがウォールストリートジャーナルマガジンのAnnual Innovator Awardsの建築部門で選ばれていました。英語ではFujimoto Souとなっています。呼びやすさも考えてのことなんでしょうか。この辺りは外国の人と交流がある人などはおなじみの現象ですよね。こういう配慮もいわゆる異文化交流では必要だと思います。

NHKのトップランナーにも登場したことのある方のようですが、今回自分は初めて知りました。記事は定期購読者以外でも読むことができそうなので、まずはプレスリリースを紹介します。受賞者を表すhonoreeという言葉は押さえておきたいですね。

honoree

The author is a Pulitzer Prize honoree.
It's a party for the new honorees.

NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WSJ. Magazine hosted its fourth annual Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City on Wednesday evening, honoring the most innovative and influential talents whose groundbreaking accomplishments have shaped their respective fields.

The honorees were: Sou Fujimoto (Architecture); Kara Walker (Art); Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine (Entrepreneurship); Nicholas Ghesquière (Fashion); René Redzepi (Food); Lil Buck (Performing Arts); and Reshma Saujani (Technology).

Each winner—chosen by WSJ. Magazine editors—was presented with an award designed by the 2011 Design winner Joris Laarman and is featured in the November Innovators issue, which is up 47 percent in advertising year over year.

"We are incredibly excited about the remarkable lineup of this year's Innovators," said Kristina O'Neill, editor in chief of WSJ. Magazine. "We spend months deliberating over the winners, and the process is always inspiring. Choosing them is a bit like planning the perfect dinner party. Which is why the event at MoMA, with so many other cultural leaders in attendance, has become WSJ.'s most anticipated evening of the year."
