ARCH DL IV: FXFOWLE vs. KonykLive coverage provided by Aaron Plewke
Team Konyk . David and Sean
[rock and roll part 2 starts here]
Team FXFowle . Paul and James
hahahahahahahahaha. it's like the mac vs pc commercials except in this case the pc is played by bob and doug mckenzie.
Great white north. And the other guys look like surfers.
Love that you are covering this, AP! I'll tune in between prepping for PechaKucha, which is due tomorrow yikes!!
Is there going to be a podcast by any chance?
Wish you were here
The brief: Alaskan Wildlife and research center
Hello you beautiful people! (And I mean the kind of beauty that is far more than skin-deep!)
Round one. Sketching / planning
What are the building materials tonight, do we know yet?
Oh man, wish I was there...
Round two. Model building. Team Konyk
Round two. Model building. Team FXFowle
Team FXFowle making progress
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.
what is this?
Action from above. 15 minutes left.
Lumberjack and woodland critters
Not quite done.
Battery dead. Online voting soon.
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?
For those of you in NYC and ready to party: ARCH DL After-Party at Hugs
Thanks for watching, and bigger thanks to Aaron Plewke with the mobile coverage. Stay tuned for some later coverage by other Archinectors in attendance: Susan Surface, Quilian Riano, and Jacob Reidel.
obviously this competition isn't for old people (like me). they're hardly given any light! how you s'posed to work in shadows, man?!
shit, i do my best work in the dark!
I know Sean, go Sean!
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.
lb if this ever happens in indianastan, i hope that we are teammates. of course, we'll wear leather rather than flannel!
the fxfowle model is hot.
damn that looked good
beta I thought you were going to say you do your best work when the batteries are dead.so who won?
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
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".
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.
cool. nice to almost make your acquaintance, OU812.
yeah yeah - how was the drinks and the chicks
I was rooting for FXFOWLE until they jumped the shark into smiley face territory. See here.
and, great to run into all the archinecters.
