We’re so happy to be starting a new feature this week, the TROPHYOLOGY Honor Roll. Our goal is to send some extra congratulations, cheers and pats on the back to people who have received awards or reached milestones. We hope our blog posts can be a place where we can celebrate accomplishments as a community. Do you know of someone receiving a special recognition? (And that includes you!) Let us know and we may feature them in a future blog.
And we’ll kick off our first TROPHYOLOGY Honor Roll feature with one of our own: We’re so thrilled that TROPHYOLOGY collaborator Mark Maček, is one of the recipients of the Artisan Award from the Texas Society of Architects. Mark is an accomplished furniture designer, woodworker and craftsman. In addition to running Macek Furniture Company, he teaches a wood design class at the UT School of Architecture.
