Harleston Parker People's Choice Award

In memory of Boston architect J. Harleston Parker, the Harleston Parker Medal was established in 1921 and first awarded in 1923. It is the BSA’s highest honor. The winner is decided by a jury of professionals to recognize “the most beautiful piece of architecture, building, monument, or structure built in the metropolitan Boston area in the past 10 years.” Recognizing the public’s appreciation of beauty in architecture may vary from the jury’s decision, each year the BSA also seeks the general public’s input by voting on the same selected finalists to anoint a People’s Choice Award winner.
