The Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America congratulates Adele Chatfield Taylor, president of the American Academy in Rome, who has been named the National Building Museum’s twelfth laureate of the Vincent Scully Prize. In announcing her selection, members of the Vincent Scully jury—jury chair David Schwarz, Deborah Berke, Ned Cramer, and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk—noted that through a variety of positions in her career, Ms. Chatfield-Taylor has consistently promoted excellence in the design world, while ensuring that the planning, architecture, and historic preservation disciplines remain connected to the public.
Since December 1988, Adele Chatfield-Taylor has been president of the American Academy in Rome, a center for independent study and advanced research in the fine arts and humanities. Among Adele’s many professional affiliations, she is a much-admired and respected member of the ICA&CA board of directors.
The award presentation and lecture will be held at the National Building Museum on November 8, 2010.
