The inaugural Designing Masonry for ALL It’s Worth HIGH PERFORMANCE | INNOVATIVE AESTHETICS Awards Program considers masonry as the unparalleled wall system, with attributes that play essential roles in the life-long performance of new commercial and institutional buildings. The contest is presented by SMART|dynamics of masonry.
Masonry can be so much more than just a veneer or a backup wall, and when thoughtfully designed and detailed it can perform multiple roles. Masonry will stand after a storm or a fire, and bring your project into budget.
The winner of each category will receive international press in the form of a two-page feature article in SMART|dynamics of masonry. They will also receive press at the national, local, trade, and digital levels, as well as social media.
The 9 entry categories are as follows:
Redundant Structural Design | Optimizing Energy Performance | Enhancing Acoustic Design | Resilient Design | Sustainable Design | Grand Masonry Interiors | Outdoor Gathering Spaces | Innovation in Aesthetics | Using Masonry for ALL Its Worth.
A panel of distinguished architects, engineers, producers, and industry executives will judge the winners of this prestigious and forward-thinking competition. Show off your innovation and your performance savvy, and challenge your imagination. International press is your prize.
Open to participants throughout the US and Canada with masonry projects completed after January 1, 2014. Deadline SEPTEMBER 7.
