Since 1989, the Brick Industry Association (BIA) has sponsored the Brick In Architecture Awards, one of the country's most prestigious architectural award programs. Architectural and design firms from around the country can enter their best material to be judged by a jury of their peers.
For the 2010 Brick In Architecture Awards, entrants must be either an architect, builder, or designer employed by an architectural, builder, design-build, or landscaping design firm that is licensed in the U.S., one of the U.S. territories or Canada at the time of the project's completion. In addition, BIA member manufacturers and distributors may enter projects of which they have been a part on behalf of the architect. Clay brick regional associations and other masonry associations from across the country may also enter projects from their own regional competitions or from their members.
Projects must be located within the U.S., one of the U.S. territories or Canada. Any member of the design team may serve as the submitting architect. Any work of architecture completed since January 1, 2005, in which clay brick is the dominant building material is eligible. Entries may also include renovation projects of which at least 50% of the new construction was completed in clay brick.
The deadline for the submission of all entries is April 30, 2010. For additional details, visit www.gobrick.com/ArchitectureAwards
