Public online voting for the 2014 George Matsumoto Prize, which recognizes excellence in North Carolina Modernist residential design, begins June 15.

Sponsored by the award-winning non-profit architecture organization North Carolina Modernist Houses (NCMH), the Matsumoto Prize is a juried competition which also includes public voting to determine three “People’s Choice” winners. Anyone in the world can vote by email (one time per email address) after viewing submissions posted on the NCMH website at http://www.ncmodernist.org/vote2014.htm.

The Matsumoto Prize is named for George Matsumoto, FAIA, a preeminent Modernist architect well-known in North Carolina for the exceptional houses he designed here while he was a member of the NC State University School of Design faculty.

George Matsumoto also serves as Honorary Chair for the Prize’s blue-ribbon jury of professional architects who select the winners of cash prizes from a pool of $6000.

“These entries inspire people dreaming of a Modernist house to know Modernist design is affordable, efficient, sustainable, and most importantly, a house their families will love for decades,” said NCMH founder and director George Smart. “We’re looking forward to record-breaking public participation via this year’s online voting.”

Online voting ends at 5 p.m., Sunday, July 13, 2014.
