Terry picks up massive Classicist prize

The AJ understands that Quinlan Terry has won the £100,000 Richard H. Driehaus Prize, one of the most valuable awards in international architecture.

The prize is awarded annually for a lifetime commitment to traditional and classical ideals in buildings and urban development.

It is often considered to be the Classicists' answer to the Pritzker Prize, which was also won by a Brit this year in the form of Zaha Hadid.

Richard H. Driehaus, the founder and chairman of a major Chicago finance house, endowed the annual award to honour a major contributor in the field of traditional and classical architecture or historic preservation.

The multi-millionaire established the prize through the University of Notre Dame's School of Architecture because of its reputation for incorporating traditional and classical architecture into modern urban development.
