The George Matsumoto Prize is a unique design competition focusing on Modernist houses in North Carolina and featuring $6,000 in awards, a blue-ribbon jury of internationally-known award-winning architects, and an online People’s Choice vote. In 2012, NCMH created the Matsumoto Prize in honor of George Matsumoto FAIA. Matsumoto was one of the founding faculty members of the NCSU School of Design who created some of North Carolina’s most well-known and well-loved Modernist houses.
The Matsumoto Prize powerfully engages the public in the value of architecture and demonstrates the unique talent of exceptional Modernist architects and designers in North Carolina.
