MIA+BSI Executive Vice President Jane Bennett commented: “Witnessing the friendly debate of our talented jurors as they view and discuss dozens of projects created with natural stone is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work at MIA+BSI. Having an opportunity to showcase such outstanding achievements of both our industry members and the architects and landscape architects who utilize their products is the best way to promote the importance of natural stone as a premier building material.”
