Spanish architect wins Driehaus Prize

Rafael Manzano Martos, a Spanish architect known for his distinctive use of the Mudéjar style, will receive the 2010 Richard H. Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture at a ceremony March 27th in Chicago. The $200,000 Driehaus Prize, presented annually to a distinguished classical architect, represents the largest recognition of classicism in the contemporary built environment.

In conjunction with the Driehaus Prize, legendary Yale professor and preservationist Vincent J. Scully will receive the $50,000 Henry Hope Reed Award. Since 2003, the Richard H. Driehaus Prize at the University of Notre Dame has honoured a practicing architect whose work respects the historic continuum, fosters community, and preserves the built and natural environments. Past recipients of the Driehaus Prize include architects Leon Krier, Demetri Porphyrios, Allan Greenberg, and Abdel-Wahed El-Wakil.
