VHA’s renovation of the Illinois State Capitol’s West Wing received the AIA’s National Honor Award for Interior Architecture. This is the highest honor a project can receive from the AIA, and the second time VHA has been recognized for our work at the Capitol. Our restoration of the legislative chambers earned the honor in 2008.
VHA principals John Vinci and Philip Hamp were named “Chicagoans of the Year in Architecture” by Blair Kamin, the Chicago Tribune’s architecture critic.
John Vinci was honored with the AIA Chicago Lifetime Achievement Award at the 59th annual Designight Gala in the Grand Ballroom of Navy Pier. Watch he and Geoffrey Baer discuss John’s career in architecture and ongoing preservation work on Chicago Tonight.
