Join the Chicago Architecture Center as we celebrate 25 years of the Driehaus Foundation Award, which encourages quality design in Chicago’s neighborhoods. Our panel discussion will explore the impact of the award and the unique and inspiring partnerships it has fostered. This program is part of Open House Chicago 2021.
For 25 years, the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Award for Architectural Excellence in Community Design has fostered urban designs that inspire people and celebrate community in neighborhoods across Chicago.
The annual award recognizes three architects for Chicago development projects that make a significant contribution to the social, visual and cultural life of neighborhoods through quality design. The award is guided by Richard Driehaus’s commitment to encourage development that respects and strengthens the city’s unmatched architectural heritage, especially in neighborhoods confronting economic and social challenges.
This program is hosted in partnership with LISC Chicago.
