Our good friend Mathew Waldman just launched a kickstarter project to help build a fairy army! It was a lot of fun (as always) helping them out with the video and working with the guys at NOOKA. The project has great intentions and will help raise awareness about the fact that attrocities are unbiased and affect everyone. We are happy to be a part of the project and you can to over at the kickstarter page!
The New Practices Committee is hosting a panel discussion at the Center for Architecture this Thursday from 6pm – 8pm. It is the first in a larger “RE:Think” series the committee has planned over the next couple of months. The hope is to provide a platform to cross pollinate new architectural practices with other emerging disciplines. On a fundamental level this first panel is meant to discuss the future of digital media in environments. The discussion will be steered towards how architects can contribute and engage in early stage design of media strategies with ad agencies, artists, programmers, scientists, and an expanding field of visionary creatives.
Admission is free and we have a great group of panelists! If you are interested, hope you can make it and contribute to the discussion.

We had a lot of fun at the dinner party for the second issue of White Zinfandel produced by our friends Jiminie Ha and Chris and Dominic Leong of Leong Leong. The them was tv dinners and we were given the task of representing the frozen flagship of frugal college apartments nation wide: Salisbury Steak. It was a lot of fun coming up with something and even more fun at the dinner!
Our friends over at the Creator’s Project just posted a video about the studio and the making of our piece R&D:azzle. You can check out the full article here. It is amazing to be listed with the other Creators, many of whom we have been inspired by over the years!

We helped launch a website for New Practices New York. The NPNY committee will be adding content over the next month.
We are just now recovering from the party last Friday. Thank you everyone who came out! If you didn’t make it, hope you can check out the store in the next week. The store is open until Nov. 23rd. If you are shoe geek, be sure to ask about the custom Nikes the girls designed for the mannequins store. They are on sale at the store now!

Just received images of the conference in Mexico. Was a very short trip but a lot of fun! The conference was for both the Architecture and Industrial Design programs at the Tecnológico de Monterrey. There were three great talks: Michael Szivos, Sigga Heimes, and Miguel Angel Alonso de Val. Everyone from the school was great and showed us around the city in the little time we had. We were also very lucky to be there during the preparations for the Día de Muertos!
