To honor individuals who have contributed at least $10,000 over their lifetime or as part of a bequest — or organizations that have given at a level above $100,000 — the Virginia Center for Architecture announced the establishment of the Hanbury Circle at Visions for Architecture on Nov. 4, 2011. The Hanbury Circle was named for the profession’s esteemed John Paul C. Hanbury, FAIA, founding principal of the firm Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Co. in Norfolk, who was known widely for his efforts in historic preservation. He generously gave his time to direct the restoration of the Branch House, which became the Virginia Center for Architecture. As a tribute to his lasting legacy of support to the VCA, the Hanbury Circle has been named in his memory. Members of this prestigious circle of supporters will be recognized by a special pin and acknowledged on a commemorative sign at the Virginia Center for Architecture.
The Hanbury Circle has several levels to recognize progressive levels of commitment.
