2008 Driehaus Prize and Henry Hope Reed Award

 

The 2008 Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture and the Henry Hope Reed Award were recently announced. The Richard H. Driehaus Prize is awarded to a living architect whose work embodies the principles of traditional and Classical and sustainable architecture and urbanism in contemporary society. Established in 2003 by Richard H. Driehaus, founder and chairman of Driehaus Capital Management in Chicago, IL, the award is presented annually by the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture and includes a $200,000 award.

Given in conjunction with the Driehaus Prize, the Henry Hope Reed Award recognizes an individual working outside the practice of architecture that has supported the cultivation of the traditional city, its architecture and art through writing, planning or promotion.

The 2008 Driehaus Prize went to the husband-and-wife team of Andrés Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, co-founders of Duany Plater-Zyberk (DPZ) and of the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU). Both are longtime faculty members at the University of Miami, where Plater-Zyberk is dean of the School of Architecture. Duany and Plater-Zyberk have completed new urbanist designs for more than 300 new towns, regional plans and community revitalization projects.

Duany has delivered hundreds of lectures and seminars on urbanism. His recent publications, co-authored with Plater-Zyberk, include The New Civic Art and Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream. He received his undergraduate degree in architecture and urban planning from Princeton University and then studied for a year at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. He received a master's degree in architecture from the Yale School of Architecture. Duany has also been awarded several honorary doctorates, the Brandeis Award for Architecture, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Medal of Architecture from the University of Virginia, the Vincent J. Scully Prize and the Seaside Prize for contributions to community planning.

Plater-Zyberk has taught at the University of Miami School of Architecture since 1979. She founded the graduate program in Suburb and Town Design in 1988. Plater-Zyberk received her undergraduate degree in architecture and urban planning from Princeton University and her master's degree in architecture from the Yale School of Architecture. Her honorary degrees include a doctorate from the University of Notre Dame. She has also received the Brandeis Award for Architecture, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Medal of Architecture from the University of Virginia, the Vincent J. Scully Prize and the Seaside Prize. She is a board member of the ICA&CA, has been a resident at the American Academy of Rome for 14 years and has served as a member of the Board of Trustees of Princeton University.

The jury for the Driehaus Prize included Richard H. Driehaus; Michael Lykoudis, dean of the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture; Adele Chatfield-Taylor, president of the American Academy in Rome; Elizabeth Meredith Dowling, author and professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology College of Architecture; Paul Goldberger, architecture critic for The New Yorker; and David M.
