Trumbauer Awards

The Fourth Biennial Trumbauer Awards will take place on Thursday, March 6, 2025. More information to come.

Presented by the Philadelphia Chapter of the ICAA, the Trumbauer Awards honors exemplary work in architecture, design, planning, landscape, decorative, and fine arts that preserve and advance the classical tradition. Named for the internationally renowned architect, and Philadelphia native, Horace Trumbauer (1868-1938), the Trumbauer Awards recognize contemporary projects that express the breadth and inclusiveness present in Trumbauer’s expansive work. This year, ICAA Philadelphia is joined by ICAA Ohio & Lake Erie, expanding eligibility to all of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and areas of New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and Maryland.
