2015 Driehaus Prize Winner

David M. Schwarz is the 2015 recipient of the Richard H. Driehaus Prize. But, if the website of his firm, David M. Schwarz Architects (DMSAS), is any indication, the $200,000 prize is just a step below gracing the cover of a phone book. Which begs the question, "Are Yellow Pages and other phone books still being printed?"

In case you can't read the lower-left corner of the screenshot above, it says:
If a community is defined by its significant buildings, then there is no greater testament to the status of any one building than to make the cover of the phone book. The book is to architecture, what Rolling Stone is to rock n' roll – a testament to a building's stature, its symbolism, its place within the community.

The buildings of DMSAS have been so honored numerous times. We consider it our highest accolade.
