Eisenhower Memorial



In the spring of 2011, the National Civic Art Society (NCAS) and the Institute for Classical Architecture & Art (ICA&A) Mid-Atlantic Chapter invited classical architects and artists to engage in a competition to design a counterproposal to Frank Gehry's design of a national monument to President Dwight D. Eisenhower.


Historic Preservation

Old Carnegie Library Building In 2007 the Society approached the School of Architecture at the
University of Notre Dame about pegging a design studio to the expansion and renovation of the old Carnegie Library Building in downtown Washington. This beaux-arts landmark ceased to serve as the city’s main public library in 1972, being supplanted by a much larger Mies van der Rohe-designed facility.
