Marvin Windows and Doors Now Accepting Entries for Prestigious Fourth-Annual myMarvin Architect's Challenge

Architects in U.S. and Abroad Offered the Chance to Showcase Their Very Best Work

WARROAD, MN--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - Architects from around the world have a chance to inspire and be inspired by the myMarvin Architect's Challenge, which is accepting entries for its fourth annual competition.

The Architect's Challenge is fast becoming one of the premier showcases in the architectural world. Winning projects in previous years have displayed the remarkable inspiration of designers in styles both traditional and contemporary, in both the residential and commercial arenas.

Among the projects that impressed the judging panel were a San Francisco townhouse, a Minnesota hunting lodge, a Mediterranean villa and a Catholic church in Wisconsin. There are no limits to the creations you can enter; all that's required is that they use Marvin windows or doors.

"Marvin is the preferred window and door of architects because we provide tailored solutions to a project to help achieve design objectives," said Christine Marvin, director of marketing for Marvin Windows and Doors. "In that spirit, we're proud to showcase the work of architects who have been inspired by Marvin to create some of their best work."

Entries will be judged on solution-driven design, classical beauty, innovative use of windows and sustainability. William J. Devereaux Jr., Mark Scheurer, AIA, and David Furman, FAIA, will judge this year's challenge.

Winners will be promoted through traditional and social media and will be featured in our permanent Winners Gallery. We invite architects to submit their best designs featuring Marvin windows and doors by May 31, 2012. Find complete entry information and contest rules at:
