When an architect excels in the industry, they may be honored for their hard work and positive impact on the field.
Recently, Robert Stern was named the 2011 winner of the Richard H. Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture. The dean of the Yale School of Architecture has helped with the construction of the Comcast Center, a Manhattan residential tower and an office in a Philadelphia commercial building.
Stern will receive a Choregic Monument of Lysikrates and $200,000 in prize money on March 26 in Chicago. The award was created in 2003 by the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture for individuals who have made a name for themselves in the realm of classic architecture in urban settings.
"I believe you cannot innovate without knowing what went before," Stern told the Wall Street Journal. "This would not be a discussion if we were talking about music or art. I do feel it is a fragile and threatened tradition in the education and practice of architects."
Employment of architects is predicted to increase by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
