The Southeast Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art bestowed honors on noted, neo-classical Atlanta architects, interior designers and landscape architects.
Co-Chairs Michelle Moody and Barbara Shelton and President of the National Institute of Classical Architecture Paul Gunther
The awards ceremony took place at the ornate ballroom of Piedmont Driving Club, which was designed by Atlanta’s iconic architect Philip Trammell Schutze (he also designed The Swan House among other Atlanta estates). The location was fitting given that the late architect’s name was lent to these prestigious awards.
Prior to the main awards ceremony, Alyse Lucas Corcoran and John Morrison hosted a patron party, while Rodney Cook held a reception at the Millennium Gate Museum. The 2012 Schutze Awards winners included Laura Howard DePree, Jim Strickland of Historical Concepts, Peter Block & Associates, Harrison Design Associates, and Pak/Heydt Associates for Residential Design; Andrew Cogar of Historical Concepts for Civic Design; Tammy Connor Interior Design and Norman Askins Architects for Interior Design; Michael Dillon for Craftsmanship, D. Stanley Dixon Inc. for Renovation; and Jeremy Smearman and Shane Griffin of Planters for Landscape Design.
