Glavé & Holmes Architecture (G&HA) is pleased to announce the firm received an honorable mention from the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art for the design of the Carole Weinstein International Center at the University of Richmond.

This was the first year for The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter’s John Russell Pope Awards celebrating excellence in classical architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture. The awards are named for John Russell Pope, best known as the architect of the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. He was renowned for interpreting European classicism in a new, American form. The awards recognize the best work of individuals who contribute to the creation of classical and traditional architecture in the Washington Mid-Atlantic region.

Celebrating international education on a campus that is renowned for its International Studies program, the design of the Carole Weinstein International Center was inspired by the academic mission the building serves and the surrounding campus. Glavé & Holmes designed the 56,194-square-foot Collegiate Gothic building to represent a resource for study-abroad initiatives, a home-away-from home for international students, and a forum for the larger community to exchange cultural experience. In addition to housing the Office of International Education, the building hosts the departments of Geography and the Environment, Latin American and Iberian Studies, and Modern Literatures and Cultures, as well as interdisciplinary programs that address global issues.
