Excellence in Masonry

Industrial/Commercial

Masonry Magazine


Mason Contractor: Brazos Masonry Inc., Waco, Texas
Architect: Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates, New York
Judges' Comments: Gracefully curved, undulating brick walls punctuated with irregular openings make this building a symphony of architecture. A rich palette of unusual brick faces and shapes further contribute to an extraordinary project. A design expressing great drama and impressive masonry craftsmanship.

Mason Contractor: Harold F. Johnson Masonry, Cheyenne, Wyo.
Architect: Douglas L. Coates Architect, Cheyenne, Wyo.
Judges' Comments: Very nice craftsmanship in the brick and cast stone arches. A very simple building cube with an abundance of texture and detail — but not overdone.

Pavers/Retaining Walls/Landscaping

Masonry Magazine


Mason Contractor: Dee Brown Inc., Garland, Texas
Architect: Brad Goldberg Inc., Dallas
Judges' Comments: A plaza worthy of highest award recognition. Huge stones, wandering paths and spacious grass areas are thoughtfully arranged with beautiful geometry. The heavy stones are beautifully hewn and carefully fit — a tribute to the masons.

Mason Contractor: Forrest & Associate Inc., Des Moines, Iowa
Architect: Murase Associates, Seattle
Judges' Comments: The combination of cut stone, rough uncut stone and water create a very tranquil destination. The stones look as if Mother Nature carefully placed them.

Rehab/Restoration

Masonry Magazine


Mason Contractor: Shadrock & Williams Masonry Ltd., Helotes, Texas
