Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Southeast Chapter
THE SOUTHEAST CHAPTER is dedicated to advancing the practice and appreciation of classical architecture and art of our region. The Southeast Chapter fulfills this mission by educating, celebrating, and creating excellence in our craft, artistic expressions, and endeavors.
Founded in 2004, the Chapter is led by an innovative Board of Trustees and holds a diverse membership of classical enthusiasts, architects, interior designers, landscape architects, artisans, artists, craftsmen, contractors, and vendors throughout the states of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
The Shutze Awards were created to recognize the region’s finest practitioners of the classical design tradition. The awards are named for the internationally renowned, Atlanta architect Philip Trammell Shutze, who is revered as one of the twentieth century’s most devoted classicists. The Awards are celebrated annually in the Fall.
The Chapter offers students, professionals, and enthusiasts a myriad of lectures, continuing education opportunities, scholarships, and travel experiences in the classical tradition.
