This year's Project of the Year winners represent some of the most exciting and impressive masonry work in North America. They range from a sprawling high school campus on the Florida coast, to a private homeowner's fireplace in British Columbia. Although they are as different as clay brick and granite, each project represents the best in masonry craftsmanship, and each is a showcase of the stunning results that masonry materials can achieve.
