The A. Hays Town Awards seek to promote and award excellence in design and execution of classical and vernacular architecture in Louisiana. In honor of architect, A. Hays Town’s legacy of rigorous study and perpetuation of Louisiana’s architectural heritage, these awards are granted to designers and craftsman who demonstrate exceptional literacy in the language of classical architecture and the building traditions of Louisiana.
Chris Bevolo shares a bit about our history and what classicism means to our long tradition of craftsmanship. Our legacy of light has a storied beginning with an encounter with Mr. Town, whose collaboration with Mr. Bevolo led to the design of our signature, Original French Quarter Lantern. Bevolo is proud to sponsor this inaugural event that celebrates timeless design.
