Prince Hitachi of Japan will present awards to architect Rem Koolhaas, director Ken Loach, sculptor Mario Merz, painter Bridget Riley and conductor Claudio Abbado at a ceremony in Tokyo today.

The Praemium Imperiale international art award, which comes with a diploma, a gold medal and $125,000, rewards extraordinary achievements in the arts. An international jury nominates the candidates and the winners are selected by the Japan Art Assn.

Previous recipients include Arthur Miller, Leonard Bernstein, Richard Serra and Frank Gehry.
