2015 John Russell Pope Awards Established in 2005, the Washington Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art advances the practice and appreciation of classical tradition in architecture and the allied arts. This year, the chapter launched an annual design competition to recognize fine classical work in the region.
The awards are named after John Russell Pope (1874-1937), a New York-based architect who also designed significant buildings in Washington, DC, including the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art. After a Philadelphia jury of experts selected the winning projects, the chapter announced its inaugural awards at a gala held on April 17 at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC. The winning residential projects are pictured, while landscape and non-residential winners are listed on these pages. For more information, visit classicist-washington.org.
