Voting Competition Celebrating Kentucky Architecture Recognizes Three Paducah Buildings

ket kyPADUCAH, Ky. (8/16/13) – You might drive past them each day; however, have you noticed their beautiful architecture? Three Paducah buildings were nominated and selected for the “50 of the Best Kentucky Buildings” competition organized by Kentucky Educational Television (KET) and the Kentucky Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Kentucky). The buildings are City Hall located at 300 South 5th Street, the Irvin Cobb Hotel at 600 Broadway, and Whitehaven Welcome Center at 1845 Lone Oak Road.
 
Public Information Officer Pam Spencer says, “Each of the three Paducah buildings selected for the competition was constructed in a different era with different architecture. But together they add to the interest and fabric of the City.”
 
Through September 30, you can vote for your favorite building(s) by visiting www.KET.org/topbuildings. Please vote as many times as possible between now and the end of September. In mid-November, the buildings with the top votes will be announced at an event in Louisville in which the nominees, the building owners, the building architects, and the general public will be invited to attend.
 
In April, KET and AIA Kentucky began accepting nominations for the best buildings in Kentucky. Once the nomination period ended in mid-June, nearly 180 buildings across Kentucky had been nominated. A selection committee of Kentucky architects narrowed the field to 50. The “50 of the Best Kentucky Buildings” contest is in conjunction with the celebration of AIA Kentucky’s 50th anniversary.
