It seems only fitting that on this November 8, The Architect’s Newspaper and the Storefront for Art and Architecture have our own election results to announce.

From October 31st to November 7th, we asked you to pick the best costume from this year’s Storefront for Art and Architecture Critical Halloween party. Storefront had asked attendees to critique old ideas of excess in art, architecture, and design, reimagining what luxury means in the process. Hosted within the ornate United Palace, the party offered up an excess of excellent costumes: a shimmering Frank Gehry-inspired dress (complete with headgear), money guarded by LLCs, and even a riff on artist Yayoi Kusama and her polka dot pumpkins.

We’re pleased to announce this year’s winner: “The Duck and the Decorated Shed” by Katherina, Katie, and Betty.
