The 2016 jury will include luminaries in their field including Ray Kappe, of Los Angeles, CA; Alison Brooks of London, England; Joshua Prince-Ramus of New York, NY; Harry Wolf of Los Angeles, CA; Charles McMurray of Miami, FL; and Nathan Crowley of Los Angeles, the architect-turned-production designer whose most recent work was seen in the sci-fi feature “Interstellar.”

Now in its fifth year, the Matsumoto Prize honors George Matsumoto, a founding faculty member of North Carolina State University's School of Design (now College of Design) and architect of some of the state’s best-known and historically significant Modernist houses. Matsumoto serves as the honorary chair.

The Matsumoto Prize is a unique awards program. It is the only juried architecture competition in North Carolina that focuses solely on Modernist houses, provides financial awards, involves a national jury of Modernist architects, offers the opportunity for public voting, and connects to a major architectural archive. Residential architects and designers entering the competition can be from anywhere but their houses must be in North Carolina.

“The Prize powerfully engages the greater community to be involved with the architecture they love,” says NCMH Executive Director George Smart. “The competition publicly showcases a new generation of outstanding Modernist architects and houses, promoting new talent and providing motivating honors and incentives in our state.”

The call for submissions will be announced in 2016. For more information on the 2016 Matsumoto Prize, visit here. To see past winners, visit here.
