Voting for Virginia’s Favorite Architecture is now closed. Throughout the months of November and December 2013, the public was asked to select their favorites based on design, innovation, history, or the spirit of their communities and Virginia.
The Virginia Center for Architecture will announce the top 100 structures — Virginia’s Favorite Architecture — in an exhibition opening on April 10, 2014.
The structures featured in this survey were nominated by architects throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the Virginia Society of the American Institute of Architects in 2014. The 250 works of architecture — buildings, bridges, monuments, and memorials — in this survey represent some of the best of Virginia’s rich architectural heritage.
