As Home & Garden strives to enlighten you on home design, we have teamed up with N.C. State University College of Design to sponsor the Home of the Month program. Registered architects are invited to submit designs for living spaces (new construction or renovations indoors or out) that demonstrate quality use of space, introduce new ideas and tackle real-life issues. Beginning in January, a design from the top 12 will be featured here. Register by Oct. 24. Entry submission deadline is Nov. 11. For details and forms, visit www.design.ncsu.edu and click on "Home of the Month." Or send e-mail to email@example.com. Meanwhile, peek into more architects' homes as our Architectural Living profiles continue through December.
