2017 John Russell Pope Awards

Recognizing architectural excellence and innovation in projects throughout the DC Metro area

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. Every other year, the chapter holds a 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 designed significant classical buildings in Washington, DC, including the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art. After a jury of experts selected this year’s winning projects, the chapter announced the 2017 awards at a gala held on April 21 at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC. The winning projects are pictured above; for more information, visit
