The Richard H. Driehaus Prize Invites Nominations

  • Comment
The Richard H. Driehaus Prize, which is administered through the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture, is opening its nomination process to the public. All interested parties are encouraged to submit nominations for consideration for the 2009 laureate.

The $200,000 Richard H. Driehaus Prize is awarded annually to an outstanding architect or firm whose work applies the principles of classicism, with respect to sustainability, to the built and natural environment. It is the largest unrestricted prize of its kind.

The University of Notre Dame will be accepting nominations at www.driehausprize.org/nominations.shtml through Friday, September 15, 2008. The brief online application calls for a nominee biography, a project list, and images of his/her work. Full instructions are provided online.

The 2009 recipient of the $200,000 unrestricted cash prize will be selected by a jury comprised of Richard H. Driehaus (Founder and Chairman of Driehaus Capital Management), Michael Lykoudis (The Francis and Kathleen Rooney Dean of the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture), Paul Goldberger (Architecture Critic for "The New Yorker"), David M. Schwarz (Principal of David M. Schwarz / Architectural Services, Inc.), Léon Krier (Architect and Scholar), Adele Chatfield-Taylor (President of the American Academy in Rome) and Robert Davis (Founder of Seaside, Florida). The jury will hold its deliberations in Buenos Aires, Argentina in September. The recipient will be honored at the annual Driehaus Prize weekend in Chicago in March.
