BIA Seeks Entries for Brick in Architecture Awards
The Brick Industry Association (BIA) recently announced it has opened entries for its Brick in Architecture awards. The award reportedly spotlight outstanding, innovative and sustainable architecture that incorporates clay brick products as the predominant exterior building or paving material. Entries are conducted entirely online, and are due by April 30.
“Now in its 25th year, the Brick in Architecture Awards continue to be the premier industry honors, and the most prestigious juried competition of its kind,” said Ray Leonhard, president and CEO. “Made from abundant natural resources, fired clay brick offers aesthetic flexibility to match the architect’s imagination and desires, and is a perfect strategy in sustainable design.”
Architectural and design firms from around the country can enter their best material to be judged by a jury of their peers. Any work of architecture completed since January 1, 2009, in which clay brick products comprise the predominant exterior building or paving material (over 50%), is eligible.
