The Georgia Trust

THE J. NEEL REID PRIZE


Applications will be available in Fall 2017.

About J. Neel Reid
Architect Neel Reid (and his partners in Hentz, Reid & Adler) founded the Georgia school of classicists after study at Columbia University and abroad. Many sources influenced Reid’s architecture, and his interior and garden designs. His travel diary, sketchbooks and scrapbooks, and extensive library reflect this. His early-twentieth-century interest in historic preservation and contextual design, in architectural education and professional standards of practice inspired others long after his tragic early death of a brain tumor in 1926.

Reid’s father’s family were Troup County, Georgia, pioneers; he grew up in Macon, beginning apprenticeship and practice there before, in 1909, moving to Atlanta.

The J. Neel Reid Prize Program Description and Criteria
The J. Neel Reid Prize of $4,000 will be awarded to a student, an intern or a recently registered professional in the field of architecture or landscape architecture for study travel that honors the legacy of Neel Reid.

The focus of the study travel should involve historic architecture (built prior to Neel Reid’s death in 1926), historic landscapes, historic preservation of classic architecture or new construction that is classic and context-related.

Applicants are encouraged to propose an independent study, but participation in an existing program is acceptable. Priority will be given to those applicants with a connection to Georgia (a Georgia resident, a student in a Georgia academic institution or an employee of a Georgia firm).

The recipient will be required to provide a report to The Georgia Trust within six months of returning from the study travel experience. Travel may be to any location in the world where the objectives of the program can be met.

The Trust must receive applications and supporting documents by February for the following year. The Prize will be announced at The Georgia Trust’s Annual Meeting in the spring. Winner will be notified beforehand. The study travel should be completed by January 2018.
