The Building Stone Institute (BSI) awarded eight projects with a 2002 Tucker Award for excellence in architecture on May 8 at a dinner held at The Park Hotel in Charlotte, NC. Awards are presented to those architectural firms whose excellence in concept and design has contributed significantly to arch-itecture throughout the world.
Entries were judged by an independent panel of architects without the participation of any member in the industry, according to BSI. Excellence in concept, design, construction and use of natural stone were criterion for projects.
