A Collaboration between the ICAA, PF, and INTBAU

Launched in 2017, the Award is a collaboration between the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA), The Prince’s Foundation (PF), and the International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture & Urbanism (INTBAU).

The relevance and importance of these skills grows each year, as the rise of homogeneous globalization and standardization threatens our individual cultures of building and craft. The Award for Emerging Excellence in the Classical Tradition aims to shine a light on exceptional talent and reward young people in the industry. The Award for Emerging Excellence in the Classical Tradition is open to applicants from around the world, and the winner will be formally announced at the internationally known and established Arthur Ross Awards in New York City each year.

The Winning Entrant

To match the level of prestige of the Award for Emerging Excellence in the Classical Tradition, the ICAA will cover the cost of travel and accommodation for the winner to be formally acknowledged in conjunction with the ICAA’s planned Arthur Ross Awards panel discussion and during the cocktail reception, which will accompany the panel discussion. Additionally, the winner will be invited to attend the Arthur Ross Awards on Monday, May 6, 2019, where they will be acknowledged before the audience, and will receive a $2,500 cash prize.

The application deadline for the 2019 Award is February 25, 2019. Click here to learn more.
