Building Stone Institute Presents the 2014 Tucker Design Awards Building Stone Institute, one of the country’s longest serving natural stone trade associations, proudly presents the 2014 Tucker Design Awards. Established in 1977, the Tucker Design Awards honor those who achieve a criteria of excellence in the use of natural stone through concept, design and construction. The award is a prestigious biennial architectural design recognition valued by both the building and landscape communities. All aspects of natural stone installation – whether exterior building, landscape, interior design, ornamentation or restoration of commercial, institutional or residential projects – were considered in this Tucker Design Award selection process. Our panel of esteemed jurors reviewed each project for its overall unique, innovative and impressive qualities, rather than its fit within a particular category. This year’s recipients represent some of the finest building and landscape projects completed throughout North America utilizing natural stone from around the globe. Tucker Design Awards celebrate the innovation and vision that designers bring to their projects through the specification and use of natural stone materials. For members of the Building Stone Institute, acknowledgement as a contributor to a Tucker Design Award winning project is a genuine tribute to their traditional values, physicality of work and dedication to precise specifications required in the realization of such accomplished architectural design.
