Last year, Konyk and FXFOWLE built us a new world out of straws... and what a beautiful world it was.
Two years ago, Balmori Associates and Field Operations sculpted green roofs out of mold-able cheesy concrete.
They're going to have to design for the future, but we're not telling what they're designing quite yet. All we're saying is complimentary Brooklyn Brewery Beers and Dewar's in Dumbo and possibly our most difficult challenge yet. Tickets are rocketing out of our (solar) system as we speak.
ARCHDL IV : 2008
The fourth in our Architect's Duel series, ARCHDL IV was a timed model building competition between KONYK and FX FOWLE, held before a sold-out Music Hall of Williamsburg.If you're familiar with our Architect's Duel, you know how it goes. The night was broken into three rounds: 30 minutes for sketching plans, 90 for building models out of an unconventional material, 10 for presenting work to the audience.
24 hours before the event, KONYK and FXFOWLE were informed that they'd be building their models out of DRINKING STRAWS; just enough to familiarize themselves with the structural potential of sippy tubes.The night of the event, in front of 450 people, the project's brief was delivered, and the boys went to work. We've got THIS VDO that'll show you the brief (hilarious), the boys working (amazing), and their final presentations (eloquent).
After a week of online voting, the world declared KONYK the unequivocal champions of
ARCHDL IV. Fame, fortune, and an INTERVIEW IN ARCHINECT followed.
LVHRD's Jeff Baxter and Jon Chonko spent weeks dusting up a model recreation of the Alaskan Oil Pipeline: THIS VDO PROVES IT. To suit our Alaskan theme, we asked LVHRD members to dress as either LUMBERJACKS or WILD ANIMALS.
Check out the GALLERY to see what the hell it looked like.
