We are thrilled to share with you the winners of the 20th annual Palladio Awards competition. This year we recognize 19 firms from across the country for their outstanding work in traditional design—nine in the commercial, institutional, and public architecture category and eleven for residential work. All winners enhance the beauty and humane qualities of the built environment through creative interpretation and adaptation of design principles developed through thousands of years of architectural tradition.
Our esteemed judges had the difficult task of narrowing down the awards amidst so many great entrants. There were five category ties, each unique project deserving of an accolade. The Palladio competition, which is the only national awards program that honors achievement in traditional architectural design, was created in 2002 by Clem Labine, founder of Traditional Building, Period Homes, and Old House Journal magazines.
The awards are named in honor of Andrea Palladio, the Renaissance architect who created modern architecture for his time while using models from the past for inspiration and guidance. The program models the same criteria that Palladio used in his own work—projects should meet all of the functional needs of contemporary usage while applying lessons learned from previous generations to create enduring beauty.
We congratulate all of the winners. For more information on attending the conference visit, traditionalbuildingshow.com.
