first_imgOn Saturday, Notre Dame presented Italian architect Pier Carlo Bontempi with the 2014 Richard H. Driehaus Prize, the most significant recognition for classicism in the contemporary environment, according to the Notre Dame website.Michael Lykoudis, the Francis and Kathleen Rooney Dean of the Notre Dame School of Architecture, said the prize was started by Richard Driehaus 12 years ago with the goal of furthering the use of tradition in the modern world.“The work that [Bontempi] has done has been all about focusing on the local character,” Lykoudis said. “He builds with consistent principles while also adapting those principles to the climate and geology, including aspects in the work that tie back to its location.”According to Notre Dame’s website, Bontempi, who originates from Fronovo di Taro, Parma, Italy, studied architecture at the University of Florence and has taught architecture at universities across America and Europe. He is most noted for his block recovery plan in Parma’s historic center, the Place de Toscane and the “Quartier du Lac” resort near Paris.“Bontempi is unique in that he doesn’t see architecture as an art that calls attention to an architect, but to the building’s central place,” Lykoudis said, “While there is a great deal of beauty in his work, he is very modest in creating quality work.”According to Lykoudis, Driehaus believed the $200,000 award and bronze statue would act as sufficient incentive to fuel the practice of classicalism and traditionalism with an emphasis on sustainability in modern architecture.Lykoudis said the Driehaus Prize allows Notre Dame to engage in the practice of advancing the use of tradition in the modern world while Notre Dame’s national recognition as a top university allows the prize to grow in stature.According to Notre Dame’s website, recipients of the Driehaus Prize are distinguished architects who are skilled in the areas of traditional or classical architecture, contribute positively to society and whose work focuses on sustainability and innovation.Each year, a panel of judges evaluates the work of various architects and comes to a consensus on the winner.The 2014 panel members included Adele Chatfield-Taylor, president of the American Academy in Rome, Robert Davis, developer and founder of Seaside, Fla,, Paul Goldberger, a contributing writer for Vanity Fair and Witold Rybczynski, award winning architecture critic and professor. The panel also included Léon Krier and Demetri Porphyrios, past winners of the Driehaus Prize.Bontempi possesses all of the qualities the panel values, Lykoudis said.According to the jury citation, Krier said “the serenity and robustness, elegance and economy of [Bontempi’s] considerable built work demonstrate the falsity of the economic, philosophic, technical, artistic argument as excuses for the catastrophic performance of the common contemporary building industry.”Tags: architecture, Pier Carlo Bontempi, Richard H.

first_imgThe Charlotte Hornets invaded Staples Center on Tuesday, no doubt hopeful of an upset victory that would really sting the Clippers. But the Hornets, fighting for their playoff lives, were coming off a 28-point loss Monday night at Utah. That would seem to make them ripe for a second consecutive such drubbing.It didn’t quite go that way.The Clippers led by 22 points early in the third quarter, only to see the Hornets cut that all the way down to a single point early in the fourth. The Clippers managed to stave off the inspired Hornets, defeating them 99-92 before a sellout crowd of 19,060.• PHOTOS: Clippers almost lose it but prevail over Hornets Rivers had some words of wisdom for his players afterward. “The lesson there is, and I told them after the game, ‘With all the injuries we have, and how thin we are, when your starters are on the floor and you have that lead, that’s the time to put them away,’” Rivers said.“And what they did, they allowed them to hang around and now you have to bring your bench in and your bench is thin because you have so many guys out. It’s going to be hard to score. It just brought too many variables back into the game and so I hope that’s a lesson for us.”Redick led the Clippers with 23 points, Paul had 21 points and eight assists, Griffin scored 19, DeAndre Jordan scored 12 and grabbed 14 rebounds and Nate Robinson scored 12 off the bench. The Hornets (29-37) entered the game in ninth-place in the Eastern Conference standings, just a half-game out of the eighth and final playoff spot. Al Jefferson led them with 21 points and Mo Williams had 18.The Clippers (43-25) are now tied for fifth with Dallas in the West..Paul gave his assessment of how Charlotte got back into the game.“We got a little complacent and started turning the ball over; I had a couple of bad turnovers in that stretch. And (we) just stopped defending. You know, we didn’t stop, but they started making shots. Al Jefferson got going, they got a few 3s and we gave them life.”Jordan echoed that sentiment.“We stopped executing,” he said. “On both ends, we started playing the score, not the game. Games like that can cost you late down the stretch. But we rode together. We started playing how we did to get the lead and we ended up winning.”The Clippers led 28-20 after one quarter. And then it was fun time in the second. Leading 30-24, the Clippers got a 3-point basket from Robinson, who was just signed to a second 10-day contract. Gerald Henderson responded with a 17-footer for the Hornets, but Robinson came back down and buried a 2-pointer for a 35-26 Clippers advantage with 8:34 to play before intermission.Robinson shot just 24.1 percent in five games during his first 10-day contract.Not long after, another struggling player — Spencer Hawes — made a 3-point basket and the Clippers led 38-26.Later in the quarter, Griffin made a sweet dribble-drive to the basket that ended with him banking in a short layup for a 42-29 lead. Charlotte’s Marvin Williams made a 3-pointer, but the Clippers answered with a 6-0 that culminated with a tomahawk dunk by Griffin and a 48-33 cushion. It was if Griffin was letting everyone know how much better that elbow is feeling.Griffin made a 17-footer with 52 seconds left in the half, and the Clippers led 55-37. Williams made a driving layup for the Hornets, but Paul made a hanging 9-footer for the final points of the half, the Clippers take a 59-41 lead into the break.Griffin scored 15 of his points in the half, making 7 of 9 from the field.Hedo Turkoglu started for Barnes and scored six points. Blake Griffin played his second game after missing 15 with an elbow injury. But Jamal Crawford (calf) missed his seventh game in succession, Matt Barnes missed his third game since March 2 with a hamstring injury and Jordan Hamilton was not re-signed after his second 10-day contract expired Monday because of an ankle injury.• MORE ON BLAKE: Griffin recovering from staph infection, ‘one of the weirdest things I’ve ever had to deal with’The Clippers led 63-41 after a 3-pointer by Chris Paul with two minutes gone in the third quarter. But coach Doc Rivers noted the ensuing meltdown began a short time later with his team ahead by 20.“I thought it started when we had the (20-point) lead and then we had four turnovers in a row and I thought the game changed at that moment,” he said.There was a 17-foot basket by J.J. Redick sandwiched inside those four turnovers.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
