Jaquelin Robertson walks away with Classicism's answer to Pritzker - images

Jaquelin Robertson, an American architect and urban planner, has landed the Richard H Driehaus Prize, the classical world's answer to the Pritzker.

The $100,000 prize is jointly the most valuable award in world architecture - equal with the Pritzker - and rewards architects who have shown commitment to traditional or classical urbanism.

A partner in the firm Cooper, Robertson & Partners, Robertson founded the New York City Urban Design Group.

He has carried out many notable schemes, including the New Albany Country Club in Ohio (pictured).

Robertson - who has taught at Yale - has long been associated with the New Urbanism movement in the US and has previously won the Seaside Prize for his contributions to American urbanism.
