The New England Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) announced 14 winners for its Twelfth Bulfinch Awards, with Adige winning the Craftsmanship/Artisanship category for 10 Winthrop Square.
The Bulfinch Awards are hosted by the ICAA New England chapter and recognize practitioners from across the nation who are committed to promoting excellence in the classical tradition and allied arts within New England. All eligible projects work toward building upon the legacy of Boston’s early Federal architect, Charles Bulfinch, who is widely regarded to be the first native-born American to work in the field professionally.
