More about the awards and nominations:
The annual Landmarks Illinois Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards honors individuals, organizations, projects and programs in Illinois whose work demonstrates a commitment to excellence in preservation and protects the historic places that matter to people and their communities.
The nominees and projects that most closely emulate Landmarks Illinois’ values and our priorities to support inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA) in preservation will receive the greatest consideration. Nominations are also judged on the following: Impact a project or person has on the community, the innovations used to complete a project, the difficulty of the project and how well it aligns with Landmarks Illinois’ mission & work.
