4th Annual Masonry Design Competition
The fourth annual masonry design competition to determine winners of the North Carolina Masonry Contractors Association (NCMCA) Sigmon Memorial Scholarship Award was held October 14th in Raleigh, N.C. Forty-eight architectural students participated in the project, which was a graded assignment for the class. Students designed and modeled the front wall for a hypothetical masonry office building, "seeking to use masonry in an insightful way."
A team of three undergraduate students in N.C. State University Professor of Architecture Pat Rand's Construction System class will share a semester's tuition. The second-, third- and fourth-place teams were awarded a selection of quality masonry craft tools.
The scholarship is named in memory of brothers David and Dwayne Sigmon and Dwayne's son, Randy, all of whom were active in NCMCA before their untimely (but separate) deaths at too early of an age.
