About the event:
Start off your Halloween weekend at the Center for Architecture’s fifth annual Pumpkitecture! competition! New York City-based firms will go gourd to gourd to once again compete for the Pritzkerpumpkin.
Who will squash the competition? What firm will succeed in summoning the Brutal ghost of Marcel Booeuer or invoking the spirit of Michael Gravesyard? Will the Crowned Curibitabe inspired by Frank-o-Lloyd Wright’s Guggengourd? See for yourself at Pumpkitecture! Come witness architects live-carve extraordinary structures and vote for the People’s Pumpkin! The carving will commence at 6:15 and will run through 7:30. Contestants will briefly defend their designs, after which jurors will deliberate and pick the winning pumpkin.
