The New England chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America has announced the 2010 winners of its inaugural Bulfinch Awards. The awards are named for Charles Bulfinch, America’s first native-born professional architect, and recognize contemporary excellence in the classical tradition of architecture and allied arts. They will be presented and the winners celebrated in a ceremony at the Massachusetts State House on Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 6 p.m.
National ICA & CA President Paul Gunther, when notified of the winners, said that the selections “resonate with our determination to recognize achievement of the past as a point of innovative departure today. New England becomes the second ICA & CA chapter to offer such a regional awards program as a complement to the countrywide Arthur Ross Awards program held in New York each year in early May. In doing so they join the Southeast Chapter with its yearly Philip Trammell Shutze Awards.”
As readers of this blog know, the ICA & CA, headquartered in New York, and its 14 regional chapters including the New England chapter, seek to advance the practice and appreciation of the Classical tradition in architecture, urbanism and the allied arts.
Awards in three of the 11 categories were won by a single firm, Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders, of Chatham, Mass. Although the competition was regional, the judges felt that the best work was in Massachusetts.
Here is a list of the 2010 Bulfinch Award winners in 10 categories:
