Thomas Beeby Named 2013 Driehaus Prize Laureate – Award Winners – Architect Magazine

A member of the “Chicago Seven,” architect Thomas Beeby, FAIA, took home the 2013 Richard H. Driehaus Prize at the University of Notre Dame to become the prize’s 11th laureate.

Beeby is best known for his part in steering architectural trends toward a more classical design approach during the 1970s and ‘80s. “Beeby’s recent design of the Tuscaloosa courthouse is a great example of how the rigor and richness of classicism can be used to achieve a sense of place and purpose that will be relevant well into the future,” says University of Notre Dame School of Architecture dean Michael Lykoudis.
