The Wolf Prize has been awarded annually since 1978 by the Israel-based Wolf Foundation. Scientists winning the Wolf Prize are often hot contenders for the Nobel Prize.

The list of previous prize winners in the field of architecture includes David Chipperfield (2010), Peter Eisenman (2010), Jean Nouvel (2005), Alvaro Siza (2001), and Frank Gehry (1992) among others.

Israel's President Shimon Peres will award the prizes in Jerusalem in May.
