The Washburn Award
The Alice Washburn Award is named for the distinguished Connecticut residential architect of the 1920s. The annual award program is a joint effort of the Connecticut chapter of the American Institute of Architects and Connecticut Magazine to acknowledge excellence in traditional house design. Focusing on style, the program honors the thoughtful adaptation of tradition to address 21st-century needs. The competition is open to architects licensed and residing in Connecticut; projects had to be one- or two-story houses completed after June 30, 2008 and designed in a style considered traditional—including but not limited to Shingle, Georgian, Queen Anne, Gothic, Colonial and Greek Revival. The three jurors chosen by AIA Connecticut for their expertise in traditional design were: Laura E. Kaehler, AIA, principal, Kaehler Architects, LLC, Greenwich; Preston Gumberich, AIA, partner, Robert A.M. Stern Architects, New York; and Michael Jehle, executive director, Fairfield History Museum, Fairfield.
