The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter is pleased to announce the 2019 John Russell Pope Awards celebrating excellence in classical architecture, interior design, urban design and landscape architecture.

The Awards are named for John Russell Pope, 1874-1937, best known as the architect of the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Pope’s additional significant works  include the National Archives Building, Constitution Hall, the Temple of the Scottish Right, and Woodend, a mansion in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  As noted by architect and historian Stephen M. Bedford, Pope’s domestic and monumental architecture established him as a “leader in the development of highly refined and restrained American classicism.” The Awards recognize the best work of individuals who contribute to the creation of classical and traditional architecture in the Washington Mid Atlantic region.

Price: $200 for all attendees

Special Columns & Coffee: John Russell Pope’s Meridian House

Saturday, March 30th
10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Meridian House
1630 Crescent Place, NW
Washington, DC 20009

Hosted by the L’Enfants

Open to all ICAA members, Columns & Coffee is a monthly social sketching excursion, in which artists and architects are invited to connect, chat, sketch, and visit local architectural gems. This month, in honor of the John Russell Pope Awards, we will be visiting Pope’s Meridian House. Built for US Ambassador Irwin Laughlin in the 1920s, this historic Beaux-Arts home has been the headquarters of the Meridian International Center since 1960. Despite this transition and later renovations, much of its exquisite art and architectural detailing has been preserved.

Participants should be prepared to bring their own materials. We will meet at the ThreeFifty Bakery and Coffee Bar at the corner of U and 17th Streets NW at 9:30am. We will be sketching at Meridian House from 10:00am to 1:00pm.

Cost: Free to all members
