BSI Announces 2014 Tucker Design Award Winners

OAK PARK, IL -- Building Stone Institute (BSI) honored 12 outstanding design projects at its biennial Tucker Design Awards program held at Unity Temple in Oak Park, IL.

First presented in 1977, the Tucker Design Award is the most prestigious architectural design award for both the building and landscape design communities. The Tucker Design Award honors those whose work exhibits excellence and innovation in concept, design, construction and use of natural stone.

As part of the celebration, BSI member Lurvey Landscape Supply hosted an open house the day prior at their Des Plaines, IL, facility, including a credit-earning seminar: Introduction to ANSI/NSC 373 – Sustainable Production of Natural Dimension Stone. BSI celebrated the winning projects again, on June 26, at a reception held in their booth shared with other members of the Natural Stone Academy at the AIA National Expo in Chicago, IL.

In conjunction with the Tucker Design Awards event, BSI recognized Peter Walker, FASLA as their 2014 Bybee Prize winner. Given in honor of the late James Daniel Bybee, a respected and long-standing member of the BSI, the Bybee Prize is awarded to an individual architect or landscape architect for a body of work executed over time, and distinguished by outstanding design and use of natural stone.

Jurors for this year's Tucker Design Awards were Blair Kamin, Architecture Critic, Chicago Tribune, Duncan G. Stroik, Principal, Duncan G. Stroik Architect, LLC in South Bend, IN, and Peter Lindsay Schaudt, FASLA FAAR, Partner, Hoerr Schaudt Landscape Architects, Chicago, IL. 

"Having our jurors at the event to present the awards to their peers while viewing amazing images of the projects and listening to their comments surrounding winning project selection is memorable to our winners," said BSI Executive Vice President Jane Bennett. "Tucker Design Award winning projects typically exhibit exceptional collaboration of the design teams with stone suppliers and installers, which is something our industry advocates and BSI celebrates." Editorial coverage of the 2014 Tucker Design Award projects and the Bybee Prize award recipient is the exclusive content of BSI's spring issue of Building Stone Magazine.  The digital edition, with expanded project information, photos, interviews and contributor resources is available on the BSI website at
