PFBC and Partners Launch Award for Emerging Excellence in the Classical Tradition

The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community, INTBAU and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) are delighted to launch The Award for Emerging Excellence in the Classical Tradition.

This brand new Award recognises exceptional talent exhibited by one young professional in classical and traditional architecture, landscape and interior design, building crafts, urban design and planning, and the allied arts.

The relevance and importance of skills in these subject areas grows each year, as the rise of homogeneous globalisation and standardisation threatens our individual cultures of building and craft. The Award aims to shine a light on exceptional talent and reward young people in the industry. The Award is open to applicants from across the world. Eligibility and submission requirements may be viewed here.

Poundbury Architecture Large The Award for Emerging Excellence in the Classical Tradition will be bestowed on Sunday 30th April at the ICAA’s headquarters in New York City. To match the level of prestige of the Award, the ICAA will cover the cost of travel and accommodation for the winner. Additionally, the Award winner will be invited to attend the ICAA’s Arthur Ross Awards – which annually recognise and celebrate excellence in the classical tradition – on Monday 1st May, and will be acknowledged before the audience.

ICAA President Peter Lyden, said: “The ICAA is honoured to collaborate with the Prince’s Foundation and INTBAU on bestowing this important new Award, which honours the essential role of the next generation in advancing the classical tradition.” 

Simon Sadinsky, Head of Education at the Prince's Foundation, said: "We are very supportive of efforts to develop and recognise the next generation of skilled architects, designers, planners and craftspeople and are pleased to be partnering with the ICAA and INTBAU in presenting this award recognising emerging talent within this living tradition."
