In 2011, the Texas Chapter launched the inaugural John Staub Awards. John Staub was a residential architect who designed numerous traditionally styled homes from the 1920s to 1960s in Texas. The John Staub Awards recognize projects within Texas and local practitioners who are committed to promoting excellence in both classical and vernacular traditions. Winners and nominees are architects, designers, and artisans whose projects work toward further building on the incredible legacy of John Staub. The awards are held on a bi-annual basis in the Fall, where our statewide membership convenes for a two-day event. #classical#architecture#art#fortworth#dallas#austin#sanantonio#houston
