Awards Presentation Ceremony

The annual Palladio Awards for 2008 will be presented in a ceremony at the Traditional Building Exhibition & Conference, March 12-15, 2008, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

Judging of the Palladio Awards

Judging and selection of the Award Winners will be done by a panel of distinguished architectural designers selected by the editors of both Traditional Building and Period Homes.

Judging Criteria

The Palladio Awards are named in honor of Andrea Palladio, the Renaissance architect who created modern architecture for his time while using models from the past for inspiration and guidance. The judges will be applying the same criteria that Palladio used in his own work: The projects should meet all the functional needs of contemporary usage while applying lessons learned from previous generations to create beauty in the built environment. Among the factors that the judges will be evaluating are: Refinement and appropriateness of the design; suitability of design in relation to the program and the project's context; appropriate selection and use of materials, quality of construction and craftsmanship and overall design excellence.

Eligibility

Who's Eligible: Architects, Interior Designers, Landscape Architects, Custom Builders, Developers and other design and building professionals are eligible to submit entries. Submissions can be from an individual or on behalf of a design team.

What's Eligible: The judges will consider completed projects in any of the 11 categories specified above. The projects should have been completed sometime between November 15, 2005 and November 15, 2007. The project can be a complete building, landscape, streetscape, etc. The project can also be a significant sub-unit of a larger project (e.g., an interior) where the applicant had control over the entire design and/or execution of the sub-unit. The judges will be primarily interested in projects in North America although projects elsewhere in the world will be considered.
