Der Grande Pinnacle Award 2022 des Natural Stone Institutes geht an „Utopia“ des Bildhauers Jaume Plensa und seine Gesichter von Frauen aus aller Welt, das die kanadische Picco Group aus Marmor geschaffen hat

Grande Pinnacle Award: Picco Group, Concord, Ontario, Canada: Utopia, Grand Rapids, MI.

Mit den Pinnacle Awards of Excellence zeichnet das Natural Stone Institute (NSI) Firmen aus aller Welt für Projekte aus, die sich abheben vom üblichen Niveau. Die Preise werden jährlich an „Projekte verliehen, deren Schönheit, Kreativität, Einfallsreichtum und Handwerkskunst die professionelle Meisterschaft bei der Verwendung von Naturstein in gewerblichen und privaten Anwendungen veranschaulichen“, heißt es auf der Webseite des US-Verbands. Eingereicht werden können nur Arbeiten von Verbandsmitgliedern, jedoch auch Projekte von außerhalb der USA.

Der Grande Pinnacle Award wird für das beste Projekt in allen Kategorien verliehen. Diese Auszeichnung umfasst für den Architekten oder Designer eine Reise zur Messe Marmomac in Verona. Sponsor ist die Messe.

In dieser Ausgabe des Jahres 2022 wurde der Preis zum ersten Mal in der Kategorie Küche/Bad verliehen. Die Anzahl der Gewinner in jeder Kategorie kann von Jahr zu Jahr variieren.
