A Larger View of the World: The First Decade of the Driehaus Prize

Ten years ago, Chicago-based philanthropist and University of Notre Dame School of Architecture Dean Michael Lykoudis came together to create a prize that they felt was missing in the architecture world, a prize for classical architecture and traditional urbanism. Classical architecture and traditional urbanism represent a culture’s highest aspirations. Classical architecture is sustainable by definition, and traditional urban design facilitates the ways people live, work, and worship together. The Richard H. Driehaus Prize at the University of Notre Dame was established to honor a living architect whose work embodies those principles in contemporary society. The Driehaus Prize has been presented annually since 2003 to architects representing various classical traditions, whose artistic impact reflects their commitment to cultural and environmental conservation. The first ten winners are Léon Krier, Demetri Porphyrios, Quinlan Terry, Allan Greenberg, Jaquelin Robertson, Andrés Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Abdel-Wahed El-Wakil, Rafael Manzano Martos, Robert A.M. Stern, and Michael Graves.
