One of Washington’s premiere architects, Robert Gurney was just awarded an American Institute of Architects Housing Award for this contemporary home in Bethesda’s woodsy Glen Echo neighborhood.  The only Washington-based architect to win an award this year, Gurney also garnered the most votes in The Washingtonian’s top architects survey, which was published in March.
