The Branch is pleased to announce its first Virginia by Design Awards, which will be awarded on April 13, 2018, the 275th anniversary of Thomas Jefferson’s birth.  We invite you to join us at the historic Branch House on Monument Avenue for our inaugural Brunch at The Branch recognition ceremony and brunch reception.

Virginia by Design will be an annual awards program targeted towards public outreach, collaboration with all design professions, and broadening education about architecture and design.  With the inaugural awards, The Branch will recognize visionary thinking; celebrate extraordinary patronage; award corporate ingenuity and insight that relates design to quality of life; honor an extraordinary emerging designer; and recognize an exemplary creative project that has had a transformational effect on its surroundings.  Design can change the world, and The Branch will award the transformational impact that Virginians and Virginia design projects have had on our world.
