Presented by the Philadelphia Chapter of the ICAA, the Trumbauer Awards honored exemplary work in architecture, design, planning, landscape, decorative, and fine arts that preserve and advance the classical tradition. Named for the internationally renowned architect, and Philadelphia native, Horace Trumbauer (1868-1938), the Trumbauer Awards recognize contemporary projects that express the breadth and inclusiveness present in Trumbauer’s expansive work. This year, ICAA Philadelphia is joined by ICAA Ohio & Lake Erie, expanding eligibility to all of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and areas of New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and Maryland. The 14 winners were recognized at a ceremonial reception and cocktail gala in the Trumbauer-designed Lincoln Ballroom at The Union League of Philadelphia on Thursday, November 3rd. The evening included commentary by Peter Miller, Hon. AIA, an awards ceremony, live jazz music, dancing and delicious food.
