The Palladio Awards

2017 Palladio Awards

The Palladio Awards honor outstanding achievement in traditional design. The event recognizes both individual designers and design teams whose work enhances the beauty and humane qualities of the built environment. Through creative interpretation or adaptation of design principles, we celebrate techniques developed through 2,500 years of Western architectural tradition. The Palladio Awards are the first and only national awards program for residential and commercial/institutional projects which demonstrate excellence in traditional design.

Winners of the 2018 Palladio Design Awards will be commemorated at a ceremony and dinner during the Traditional Building Conference on July 18th in Princeton, New Jersey. Palladio's commercial/institutional winning projects are published in the June issue of Traditional Building; Residential winning projects are published in July's Period Homes.
