WARROAD, Minn., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvin Windows and Doors invites architects to enter its 2017 Architects Challenge, a competition awarding prizes to residential and commercial design projects that exhibit creativity and ingenuity using Marvin windows and doors.

Now in its ninth year, the 2017 Marvin Architects Challenge will recognize one outstanding design in each of five categories – Contemporary, Transitional, Traditional New Construction, Remodel/Addition and Commercial. An overall Best in Show prize will also be awarded. The entries will be evaluated by an independent panel of esteemed architects, including Robert Gurney, FAIA, Manny Gonzalez, FAIA, NCARB, LEED AP, CAASH and Ted Flato, FAIA.
"The Architects Challenge is an opportunity for Marvin to recognize architects who take creative advantage of the design flexibility we build into our products," said Dondi Kazukewicz, senior manager of brand communications at Marvin Windows and Doors. "But it is also an opportunity for us to honor their vision and expertise. With each year's submissions, we are inspired to refine our products and services to help meet the challenges they face."
Winning entries will be announced during an ARCHITECT Live event at the 2017 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Convention, April 27- 29 in Orlando. Marvin will provide conference travel, lodging and registration for the winners.
In addition to the trip to the AIA Convention, the six winners of the Architects Challenge will receive a VIP trip to Minneapolis and Marvin's headquarters in Warroad, Minn., earning AIA-CES credits during the visit. The project awarded Best in Show will be featured in Architectural Digest magazine, and all of the winning projects will be featured in ARCHITECT magazine and extensively promoted.
