Bear Fights Lumberjack At Brooklyn Architectural Smackdown

Architecture was fun for one night as LVHRD’s ARCH DL IV pitted two teams of architects against each other in a live one-night mystery challenge. Last night’s brief:

Build an Alaskan Wildlife Research Facility using drinking straws – a representation of the Alaskan Oil Pipeline.

Konyk and FXFOWLE faced off in front of attendees who were asked to dress as bears or a lumberjacks. To further set the tone, LVHRD provided suggestions for proper dress and this fine video of a lumberjack in action, although we have to say we were confused because we thought that’s how all people in Brooklyn dressed anyway.

We think there was voting and a winner declared somewhere in there, but we can’t really see beyond all the drunk people in plaid shirts. Luckily Mimi Zeiger at loud paper has the party report, Archinect has some amazing play by play live coverage and Architectural Record has video interviews with all the teams. FXFOWLE’s strategy: “No preparation. Don’t take it seriously. Stay in character.”
