The jury has spoken: Here are the winners of this year’s annual Bulfinch Awards program of the New England chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. The winners in 11 categories were selected from among 67 entries, including 17 from outside of the region. This year was the second in which the program was expanded from New England practitioners only submitting work in New England to practitioners from around the country submitting work in the region. According to chapter president (and Bulfinch committee chairman) David Andreozzi, the entries were of superior quality. “The quality of the submissions is improving exponentially each year,” he added, “as national architects are now competing against regional architects for their work to be honored in our prestigious Bulfinch Awards.” The jury – Barbara Eberlein, Duncan McRoberts and Richard Sammons – endured a genuine workout for its judgment.

This year’s program, the chapter’s seventh since 2010, enabled the chapter to ramp up the strength of its advocacy for the mission of the ICAA. Increased publicity arising from the wider participation of companies from around the country certainly sharpened the public’s awareness of the classical tradition as an alternative to modernist practice in the full range of architectural and artistic practice here in New England and throughout the U.S.
