BarberMcMurry Wins Awards



BarberMcMurry Architects has won an AIA Tennessee and two AIA East Tennessee awards — for their work at St. George Greek Orthodox Church, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital,and the University of Tennessee.

For the restoration of St. George Greek Orthodox Church, BMA won an AIA Tennessee Merit Award. The restoration followed a devastating 2015 fire, and included the church’s traditional Byzantine architecture and hand-crafted glass mosaics. The iconic mosaics were restored by the original artist, Sirio Tonelli, as his final installation before his death in 2018.

For the renovation of the chapel at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, BMA won an AIA East Tennessee Merit Award. The hospital wanted the new chapel to be inviting for people of all backgrounds and faiths, so the design is calm, sedate and minimal. 

For the design of the Student Union at the University of Tennessee, BMA won an AIA East Tennessee Merit Award in conjunction with McCarty Holsaple McCarty. The largest building ever constructed at UT Knoxville, it was carefully designed to improve circulation not only in the building, but across campus. The building’s iconic two-story torch sculpture was crafted by Pretentious Glass Company.
