No city like the one depicted in Carl Laubin's "A Classical Perspective" exists anywhere. The painting is a capriccio, a made-up model that demonstrates a relationship between elements where no such relationship exists. In this case, the capriccio comprises buildings designed by the winners of the Richard H. Driehaus Prize. Every year, the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture presents the award to a top mind working in the field of traditional or classical architecture. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Driehaus Prize this year, Laubin painted "A Classical Perspective" by compiling buildings and plans by all 10 winners.
