On April 21, 2017, the Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art hosted their biannual ceremony for the John Russell Pope Awards at the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C. The John Russell Pope Awards recognize excellence in classical architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture. They are named after John Russell Pope, who was the architect of the Jefferson Memorial, National Gallery of Art, and the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C., in addition to many other incredible buildings.
We are thrilled to share that McCrery Architects was awarded the 2017 John Russell Pope Award for Ecclesiastical Design over 3,000 square feet for Saint Mary Help of Christians Catholic Church in Aiken, South Carolina!
Following a very articulate introduction to the project by Calder Loth, James McCrery very humbly accepted the award on behalf of McCrery Architects. You can view a video of the award presentation and acceptance speech by clicking the link below:
As so eloquently put by James, McCrery Architects is very grateful to the ICAA Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter for this incredible honor and will use it as inspiration in continuing to pursue excellent classical architectural design in all of our projects!
