UMN School of Architecture Design

The 'Masonry Workshop' course was a success!
Mark Swanson of the International Masonry Institute, the Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Training Center masonry coordinator John Slama, and Dick Kentzelman (BAC retired) instructed the Masonry Workshop course. Presentations were judged at the wrap-up of the course. Pre-apprentices sat in on the presentations at the training center and asked great questions about freeze thaw and how the water would drain. MC&MCA contributed $1500 from our masonry education trust fund.

Two teams with four students per team were judged this year by Mark Severson of American Artstone Company, Jeremy Douglas of Hohmann & Barnard, Inc. (flew in from New York), John Anderson of JDA Design Architects, Jody Paulson of the BAC Training Center, and Mark Swanson.
