A.W. Hastings & Co., New England's exclusive distributor of Marvin Windows and Doors, is conducting the 3rd annual MyMarvin Architect Challenge. The challenge, which is open to architects from around the country, will highlight the architectural vision and design expertise of recent building projects which feature Marvin windows and doors.Tags:
The MyMarvin Architect Challenge begins March 1 and will end May 31. Architects are encouraged to submit their design projects to Marvin Windows and Doors for consideration. Up to ten winners will be chosen, and the winning architects will be invited to Minneapolis, MN and Warroad, MN for an AIA tour of various homes and buildings of architectural interest and a Marvin factory tour. Winners will receive a professional photo or video shoot of their winning project, which may also be featured in online publications. Additionally, winning projects from the Northeast region will be displayed in booths at both the Residential Design and Build Boston shows in Boston and will receive further advertising in regional publications such as Architecture Boston.
The project submitted must be of the architect's original design, built within the last ten years, clearly photographed, and include a general description and location of the structure, the year of construction, and the types of Marvin products used. Entries will be judged by prestigious architects Carson Looney, William Kreager, and Mark McInturff, based on the following criteria: solution-driven design, classical beauty, innovative use of windows, and sustainability.
A.W. Hastings' marketing manager Sandra Stoughton said that participation in the myMarvin Architect Challenge has been growing steadily over the past few years. "The challenge has attracted both established and up-and-coming architects from around the country and has been a great vehicle to showcase their talents while earning the recognition of their peers," she said. "We look forward to seeing some innovative uses of Marvin products once again this year!"
