The 2023 John Russell Pope Awards

Every two years, the Washington Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art holds a design competition recognizing 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 2023 awards at a gala held on April 28 at The Sulgrave Club in Washington. The winning projects are listed below; for more information, visit classicist-washington.org.
