April events in the gallery at the SAW shop included “Before it was Pretty: the art of Architecture” and “Shake Your Model Maker” a live model-off competition. We had a ton of fun with the show and with the model competition, and we’re already psyched to do another design related event next year – stay tuned.
“Before it Was Pretty,” the show in the gallery, celebrated the art of the design process, and was timed to correspond with Colorado Architecture Month.
We were lucky to count participation from 10 talented and diverse local firms, including: Blugreen, Land + Shelter, Greenline, Energy & Sustainable Design, Airmada Lighting Design, Hagman Architects, David Johnston Architects, Maggert Engineering, Rowland + Broughton, David Rasmussen, and Dana Ganssle. Thanks to the incredible installation efforts of these designers, the gallery was bursting with the messy vitality of design work, and people were drawn the joy of it.
“Shake Your Model Maker” was a fierce but fun model design competition that everyone enjoyed – spectator or participant.
Back to our roots with glueguns and pipe-cleaners – designers went to work with a one hour live model-off. It was chaos.
