In memoriam: Richard H. Driehaus

“Richard Driehaus was a tireless champion for the creation of a built environment that is functional, durable and beautiful. Not content to merely make significant improvements to his own city of Chicago, he provided a global forum to amplify the efforts of leading classical architects and urbanists around the world, ensuring that his legacy endures for generations to come,” said Stefanos Polyzoides, Francis and Kathleen Rooney Dean of the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture and chair of the jury for the Driehaus Prize. “Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his family, friends, colleagues and all those whose lives he touched with his generosity.”
