Brick Southeast Asks Raleigh Architect Frank Harmon to Serve as Chairman, Coordinator for Design Competition

Raleigh, NC, August 07, 2007 --( Frank Harmon, FAIA, of Frank Harmon Architect in Raleigh, has agreed to chair and coordinate a panel of jurors for Brick SouthEast’s AIA/Georgia “Design With Brick” awards competition.

Brick Southeast (BSE) is a Charlotte, NC-based trade organization that represents the Southeast's brick manufacturers. The Design with Brick competition honors and promotes exemplary architectural design when clay brick is used as a predominant building material. Architects entering the program will be judged on the skill and creativeness they display when designing with brick. Categories include commercial, residential, landscape projects, and other unique applications.

BSE has sponsored this awards program with AIA/North Carolina and AIA/South Carolina for many years. This will be its first program for AIA/Georgia.

Judging will take place in Frank Harmon’s office on Mountford Street on September 12. The judges Harmon assembles will view a PowerPoint presentation of all the projects along with the required submittal binders.

The awards presentation and recognition to the brick suppliers will take place during AIA/Georgia’s 2007 design conference, which will take place in Savannah October 3- 6. Harmon will speak on behalf of the judges at the presentation ceremony.

Frank Harmon is already scheduled to present a seminar entitled, “Architecture with a Conscience: Designing Contemporary Regional Architecture,” during AIA/Georgia’s design conference. The seminar will illustrate the importance of place and region to innovative, appropriate, and sustainable, or “green,” design in contemporary architecture.
