The mystery model building material is straws. That's right. Straws. Each team was also given Swedish fish, but neither seems to be using them. One spectator, Michael Kubo, points out that team konyk has already begun "plating."

according to the applause poll konyk is the crowd favorite.

Who's battery is dead? Our reporter's?

Anyone know if there are any parameters for the voting? Or is it just the "coolest" one wins?

Based only on the info in this thread, I'd have to say I like fxfowle's better. It looks more graceful. But both are cool, and it looks like fun all around.

beta I thought you were going to say you do your best work when the batteries are dead.

Konyk won with applause at the event, but online voting will continue this week at LVHRD.ORG

a video by arch. record is at http://construction.com/video/

Konyk kicked ass

Jan 30, 08 10:13 am

yes, my cameraphone battery died at the end of the night, just a few minutes after i sent that last image ("straw" poll).

LVHRD is trying something different with the voting this year - online voting in addition to the live poll.

Audience members were given cards upon arrival. After the teams presented, voters were to give their cards to the lumberjack if they wanted to vote for Team Konyk, or to the big brown bear if they wanted to vote for FXFowle.

Online voting will start this Thursday. From the LVHRD ARCH DL site:
...you’ll be able to watch VDO’s of our Architects presenting their models AS WELL AS vote for ARCH DL’s winner starting Thursday, January 31st, right here on lvhrd.org.

Each live audience member vote will count as 3 votes, while online votes count as a single vote. vote vote vote.

more info to come.

and thanks for following along last night! we had a great time!

^nice. i missed those last 2 comments...

OU812, thanks for the link. i was looking for that this morning but couldn't find it. i actually saw the archrecord video journalist (?) on the platform of the L train last night after the event, sitting on the ground with her laptop and camera, already editing the video. she (you?) said that she hoped to get the video up by this morning. it looks great, and really gives a good impression of the two teams.

Yeah i like the look of FXFowle but i think the idea behind Konynk's (as expressed in the Arch Video) is more interesting...
It responds to possibilities better.

And as one of the guys from FXFowle said in the video, they have more beuatiful objects (on the human scale), "if we could really make things do that".

OU812
Jan 30, 08 10:47 am

AP, yes that was her (web editor for arch. record) and i on the L platform last night working. i'd like to take credit for it, but i just held the mic.
