You’ve seen the chef’s version, but now it’s architects’ turn to answer the challenge. On 06.17.10, the Iron Designer Challenge will feature five teams of NYC professionals partnered with students of The Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction (SDC) facing off in an ultimate design/build competition. Teams will have three hours to construct life-size emergency shelters made from everyday materials in front of a live audience and judges. The event will be hosted by television personality Diana Williams from WABC-TV and include live music by The Roof Walkers, an open bar, food, and city views from an outdoor roof deck. The AIANY Emerging New York Architects Committee (ENYA) is sponsoring the event.
