New for 2014 is a student element to advance forward-thinking, innovative concepts for the use of natural stone in design. Competition details for this segment of the award presentation are being developed with consultation from the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture in Chicago. BSI’s student element will initially draw upon a few Chicago-based architectural schools as a host city pilot program. Involvement with members of the BSI will further increase design student connectivity to this resource of valuable natural stone knowledge and experience. Students earning design recognition from the jury will be invited to attend the awards ceremony, offering opportune interaction with world-class, award-winning architects and landscape architects.
Entry forms, submission guidelines and additional information about the Tucker Design Awards program and joining the BSI are available online at: www.buildingstoneinstitute.org.
