I am delighted to announce that I will be receiving the Henry Hope Reed Award in Chicago on the 23rd of March this year. It is a great honour for me as I am the first artist to receive this award, presented in conjunction with the Driehaus Architecture Prize which is given to an architect who has made a major contribution to the field of vernacular and classical architecture. The Henry Hope Reed Award “is given to an individual working outside the practice of architecture who has supported the cultivation of the traditional city, its architecture and art through writing, planning or promotion” and now painting!
The award usually goes to academics like David Watkin, James Ackerman and Vincent Scully or businessmen who have devoted themselves to guiding forward major architectural projects like Professor Ruan Yisan who has directed a number of large scale conservation projects in China, and Torsten Kulke who has led the rebuilding of Dresden’s New Market and received the award last year. I am greatly humbled to be included on this list. The award was established by Richard H. Driehaus and is presented annually and administered by the School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame.
