Institute of Classical Architecture & Art
The Annual Stanford White Awards for Excellence in Classical and New Traditional Design recognize achievement in individual projects in architecture, interiors, landscape, urbanism, and building craftsmanship & artisanship throughout New York, New Jersey, and Fairfield County, Connecticut. The awards program is named in honor of Stanford White (1853-1906), of the distinguished New York firm McKim, Mead & White, whose legacy of design excellence and creativity in architecture and the related arts continues to serve as a source of inspiration and delight.
The design for the Stanford White Award Medallion is directly inspired by Stanford White’s own ex libris, designed by the early 20th century painter, etcher and woodcut artist, Allen Lewis, which illustrates White’s reputation for collaborating with other artists. A laurel wreath symbolizes achievement, the lion’s head strength, and the basic tools of an architects trade, dividers and a scale. The elements all “succinctly combined in this perfectly balanced work of art.”
E.R. Butler & Co. is privileged and honored to produce and sponsor the Stanford White Award Medallion.
