  • (1888PressRelease) March 18, 2010 - For 28 years, the highly coveted Arthur Ross Award has recognized top traditional architecture firms headquartered in cosmopolitan cities like New York, Washington, D.C., and London. This year the Arthur Ross Award has landed in Atlanta.

    Offered by the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America (ICA&CA), the juried award honors architects, craftsman, patrons and others dedicated to enhancing and preserving classical traditions in architecture, urbanism and their allied arts.

    "Winning the Arthur Ross Award is particularly satisfying because it recognizes the work we have been so passionate about for nearly three decades," said Historical Concepts founder James L. Strickland, whose firm, based in Peachtree City, Georgia, is this year's recipient in the Architecture category.

    With a Masters Degree from Yale and a background in construction, Strickland founded Historical Concepts in 1982 as a design/build firm constructing homes that emulated classic American architecture. Today Historical Concepts stands as a leader among traditional place-making firms, specializing in the design of custom homes, historic districts, and traditional communities based on the long-standing principles of traditional architecture and planning.

    "At a time when traditional architecture was considered passť, we built homes that struck a chord with people who wanted to live in something that felt authentic and timeless," said Strickland, whose firm now focuses exclusively on architecture and planning. "This award really belongs to the clients who have given us such tremendous design opportunities over the years."

    Along with partners Terry Pylant, Aaron Daily, Andrew Cogar, Kevin Clark, and managing partner Todd Strickland, founder Jim Strickland leads a 30-person design team creating home designs in a broad range of historically inspired styles for clients across the country.

    The awards ceremony and celebration dinner will take place on Monday, May 3, 2010 at the University Club, One West 54th Street in New York City. For more information please contact The Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America at 212-730-9646 or visit :
