DURHAM, N.C. - Jan. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- (Durham, NC) – North Carolina Modernist Houses (, the award-winning non-profit organization dedicated to documenting, preserving, and promoting Modernist residential design across the state, has announced its 2014 George Matsumoto Prize Jury (

The jury for the 2014 Prize includes Harry Bates of Bates Masi Architects in Sag Harbor, New York; Maryann Thompson of Maryann Thompson Architects in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Philip Banta of Banta and Associates in Emeryville, California; Harry Wolf of Wolf Architecture in Los Angeles, California; Helena Arahuete of Lautner Associates-Helena Arahuete Architect also in Los Angeles; and George Matsumoto, honorary chair.

Now in its third year, the Matsumoto Prize is a unique design competition featuring $6000 in awards, a blue-ribbon jury of internationally known architects and designers, and online public voting.  It is named to honor George Matsumoto, a founding faculty member of North Carolina State University's School of Design (now College of Design) who created some of the state’s most well-known and historically significant Modernist houses.

The Matsumoto Prize is the only juried architecture competition in North Carolina that focuses solely on Modernist houses, provides financial awards, involves a national jury plus public voting, and connects to a major architectural archive at the NCMH website. Residential designers entering the competition can be from anywhere but the houses they submit must be located in North Carolina.

“The Prize powerfully engages the greater community to be involved with the architecture they love,” says NCMH founder and director George Smart, “and the competition publicly showcases a new generation of outstanding Modernist architects and houses in North Carolina.”
