The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Southeast Chapter Board of Trustees together with the Kyle D. Taylor Memorial Scholarship for Architectural Studies Committee has set a goal to raise an additional $200,000 by 2029 to endow the scholarship and continue the work that Kyle began. There are very few opportunities for in-depth analysis available to students and practicing professionals in the United States and limited opportunities for the study of classical and traditional architecture in the Southeast region. Donations continue to be accepted.
A Georgia native, Kyle D. Taylor was a much-loved member of both the Atlanta architecture community and the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Southeast Chapter, until his untimely death in 2019. After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology and his Master of Architecture degree with a Classical Architecture concentration from Notre Dame University, Kyle returned to Atlanta, where he became a project manager at D. Stanley Dixon Architect.
A gifted architect with a passion for classical design, Kyle was a longtime member of ICAA, Southeast Chapter, serving as President of the chapter’s group for young professionals, The Guild, and helping to organize chapter events, including the Shutze Awards and patron trips. In 2017, he was appointed to the chapter’s Board of Trustees, serving as Treasurer.
