Fu-Tung Cheng announced the winners of Cheng Concrete’s 2010 Circle of Distinction Design Challenge, the longestrunning awards competition honoring design and craftsmanship in decorative concrete, at the Concrete Decor Show in Phoenix. Entries were submitted by Cheng Concrete Exchange members, a group of skilled concrete artisans.
Out of 103 entries and after a long judging session, 30 awards were given to 18 individual winners: one Best of Category in each of 11 categories, 18 honorable mentions, and one Best of Show.
Rising to the top of this year’s entries, the Best of Show award went to Jeff Kudrick of J&M Lifestyles LLC of Randolph, N.J. Kudrick’s Uptown Manhattan Master Bath project features a bevel-shaped concrete double vanity supported by wall brackets to create a floating effect, as well as a poured concrete leg that functions as a shower seat. The tub surround and shower pan are concrete, as are cast shower niches that make use of otherwise unused space.
Judges for the Circle of Distinction Design Challenge 2010 were Cheng, Dr. Tanya Komas, director of the Concrete Industry Management Program at California State University, Chico, and corresponding fellow with the Center for Heritage Conservation, College of Architecture, Texas A&M University, and Monika Gromek, contributing editor for Apartment Therapy and visual/user interface designer for Apple.
Entries were judged on the following criteria: elements and principles of design, design planning, innovative concept/forward thinking, creativity/innovation, use of color, presentation, innovative forming techniques, and client problem-solving.
