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.
