Online Public Voting Begins For The Matsumoto Prize

July 9, 2012 (Durham, NC) -- Public voting started yesterday for the inaugural George Matsumoto Prize for North Carolina Modernist residential design, a unique architecture competition sponsored by nonprofit Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH).

Photographs, floor plans, and descriptions of 19 single-family, Modernist houses are online now at www.trianglemodernisthouses.com/vote.htm. The Prize is open to anyone who designed a ground-up North Carolina Modernist house since 2006.

Anyone may vote for his or her favorite, once per email address. According to TMH founder and director George Smart, the “sleek, refined, powerful entries for the Prize brilliantly continue this state’s incredible legacy of Modernist residential design.” A panel of nationally known architects, along the public, will determine the top three winners of $6000 in cash prizes.

“We want tens of thousands of eyes and votes to see this great collection of Modernist houses,” Smart said, “so we’re encouraging submitters and the public to post frequently to Facebook, Twitter, via email, newsletters, or blogs.”

Public voting concludes at 5 p.m. EST, July 22. 

TMH named the Prize for George Matsumoto, FAIA, one of the founding faculty members of the North Carolina State University School of Design (now College of Design), internationally renowned for his mid-century Modernist houses in North Carolina. Matsumoto serves as Honorary Chair on the jury of which includes Frank Harmon, FAIA, (Chair), Marlon Blackwell, FAIA, David Jameson, FAIA, Tom Kundig, FAIA, and Larry Scarpa, FAIA.
