I look forward to seeing all the winning entries, and was both surprised and excited to see so many local firms make the final cut. Although I was not involved in the concept design and have only done a minimal amount of work on the entry by Marc Fornes of THEVERYMANY I came on board just in time to gear up for its construction. Things are in their final stage now, and I think that the end result will be well received. To my knowledge only two projects have been unveiled so far, the first...

XNOT was a collaboration between Morgan Reynolds, Ravi Raj and myself with the of exploring both the historical, conceptual, and physical constructs of the Sukkah as a temporary for of architecture.  We will be retouching a few of the drawings before I post them, but until then here is a sample image.

I can't wait to see the in-depth project analysis and drawings John. That's an interesting project partnership as well. Congrats to you three on your work!

Thanks Malika, as soon as we make a few changes I will post the whole project. The partnership went great, and I hope to work with them again soon.
