JERUSALEM (AP).- British and American architects were named winners of Israel's prestigious Wolf Prize.

The Wolf Foundation said Wednesday that British architect David Chipperfield is being recognized for overseeing the reconstruction of Berlin's Neues Museum in a building that had been abandoned since World War II.

His new building incorporated bricks, stairs and bullet holes from the original museum, which opened in 1855.

American architect Peter Eisenman designed the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, inaugurated in 2005. The foundation says Eisenman's work "provides a new paradigm for memorialization."

The winners will share the $100,000 award.

On Monday, the Wolf Foundation announced prizes in medicine, agriculture, physics and mathematics.
