The deadline for Bulfinch Award entries arrives on Sept. 15, less than a week from today. The awards, named for Boston architect Charles Bulfinch, architect of the Massachusetts State House, aims to honor the work of architects and firms in the six states represented by the New England chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America. the work entered must have been completed within the past five years, and must also be located within the six states (not including Connecticut’s Fairfield County, which is part of the national chapter, headquartered in New York City).
Submissions will be entertained for these prize categories: residential (restoration, renovation, sympathetic addition), residential (new construction), civic/institutional/ecclesiastic, commercial, landscape architecture, artisanship, residential interiors, and community design.
Details of the entry process and specifics of eligibility are listed at the chapter web site, here. Submissions may be entered online by e-mailing chapter Vice President William Young at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winners, which will in some fashion engage the classical tradition, will be announced on Nov. 3 at an awards ceremony to be held in Bulfinch’s State House.
