Governmental/Institutional

Masonry Magazine


Mason Contractor: Lucia Inc., Houston
Architect: Michael Graves & Associates, Princeton, N.J.; and Pierce Goodwin Alexander & Linville, Houston
Judges' Comments: Brilliantly dramatic handling of exterior form emphasizing vertical piers with contrasting masonry modules. If there were a "Best in Show," this would be it.

Mason Contractor: Aden Masonry, Pasco, Wash.
Architect: ALSC Architects, Spokane, Wash.
Judges' Comments: Staggered and stepped stone face concrete masonry panels appear to come out of the ground to anchor the glass box in place. A proud community asset.

Mason Contractor: R&D Masonry Inc., Everett, Wash.
Architect: Becker Architects, Kirkland, Wash.
Judges' Comments: While this is obviously a very customized design, it appears as though it would fit into virtually any neighborhood very nicely. A wonderful, small project.

Mason Contractor: Mark 1 Inc., Nunnelly, Tenn.
Architect: Thomas, Miller & Partners LLC, Brentwood, Tenn.

Mason Contractor: R&D Masonry Inc., Everett, Wash.
Architect: Northwest Architect Company, Seattle
Judges' Comments: A playful school design... Stone, brick and concrete masonry are employed to define different areas of this school building in a very dramatic way. A bold solution.

Education - 9-12

Masonry Magazine


Mason Contractor: Williams & Sons Masonry Inc., Lakeside, Calif.
Architect: Mosher Drew Watson Ferguson, San Diego
Judges' Comments: An extraordinary school campus, with hints of Romanesque Revival stone architecture, built with today's concrete masonry. Walls are a beautiful combination of bases, frames and belts created with smooth and split-face blocks laid in different planes.

Education - College/University

Masonry Magazine


Mason Contractor: Dee Brown Inc., Garland, Texas
Architect: Hanfeld Hoffer Stanford, Ft. Worth, Texas

Masonry Magazine


Mason Contractor: Brazos Masonry Inc., Waco, Texas
Architect: Boka Powell, Dallas
Judges' Comments: A well done example that hints of Italian Villa revival architecture. Stone detailing and craftsmanship are excellent. Crisp contrast of unusual brick color mix, white mortar and white stone is noteworthy.
