Public voting is now open for the 2020 George Matsumoto Prize, North Carolina's highest honor exclusively for Modernist residential architecture. This year there are 21 entries, from the coast to the mountains.
George Smart, founder of USModernist and NCModernist, started the competition in 2012 to honor George Matsumoto, who created some of North Carolina's most well-loved Modernist houses. Matsumoto was one of the founding faculty members of North Carolina State University's College of Design.
"The Matsumoto Prize encourages young architects, designers, and prospective clients to continue the Modernist movement in houses so important to North Carolina's design heritage," Smart commented.
Voting ends Wednesday, July 1 at 5pm.
