The Philadelphia Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is pleased to announce the Inaugural Horace Trumbauer Awards. The awards program honors internationally renowned native Philadelphian architect Horace Trumbauer (1868-1938) and recognizes contemporary projects characterized by the breadth and inclusiveness present in his work. Trumbauer’s extraordinary success followed modest professional and social beginnings, and he was unrivaled in the early 20th century in American architecture for the quantity and magnificence of his projects. “When Philadelphia boasts of its native sons, as occasionally it does the architects among them, let the place of Horace Trumbauer be the first of the chosen,” Henry Hope Reed wrote of Trumbauer.
The winners will be recognized at a ceremonial reception and cocktail gala in the Trumbauer-designed Lincoln Ballroom at The Union League of Philadelphia on Wednesday, November 9th. The ballroom will be furnished in the manner of a Trumbauer-era home and the evening will include commentary by Tom Savage of Winterthur, an awards ceremony, live jazz music, dancing and delicious food.

Conversations with Radical Traditionalists: Classical Interiors, Historical and Contemporary
Thursday, February 23, 2017
6:30 PM Reception, Discussion begins at 7:00 PMThe Franklin Inn Club
205 South Camac Street
Modernist design education diminishes, or eliminates entirely, the subject of architectural history. This is well understood by Dr. Elizabeth Dowling, Professor Emerita of Architecture at Georgia Tech, who has taught architectural history for over thirty years and has demonstrated the connections between history and current classicism in her recent book, Classical Interiors: Historical and Contemporary (Rizzoli, 2013).
In an illustrated lecture using nineteenth-century historical paintings, architectural renderings and current photography, Dr. Dowling will present examples of residential work that demonstrate the continuity of classicism and the vibrancy of current design that draws from the rich history of twenty-five centuries of architecture. She will provide an overview with contemporary examples from twenty American and European firms, with particular focus on the Philadelphia firms of Alvin Holm, John Blatteau and John Milner.
Designers, patrons, students and architectural enthusiasts will find classicism’s variety enduringly delightful.
Betty Dowling is a Professor Emerita of architectural history at Georgia Tech and a registered architect until 2005. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from Georgia Tech (1971), her Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois (1972), and her Ph.D. in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania (1981). She has received an International Book Award from the American Institute of Architects for her book, American Classicist: the Architecture of Philip Trammell Shutze (Rizzoli, 1989). She has also received the 2001 Arthur Ross Award in the field of education in recognition of her instruction in classical architecture. Her research continues to explore currently practicing classical and traditional designers.
