2019 Best of Design Award for Architectural Representation: Support
Designer: KEVIN HIRTH Co.
Location: New York City

This wall mural and collection of models, installed for the 2017 Architectural League Prize exhibition, is a collapsed visual field representative of the monumental Colorado landscape. Six unbuilt projects are collected together in the context that informed and inspired them. In the tradition of the 17th-century capriccio, these works are realized in their grandest form imaginable. As a body of work viewed in total, each project supports the next to create a greater whole. The projects use uncomplicated primary geometries in unexpected configurations to engage with the grandiose landscape of Colorado. The models, made of the same paper as the collage, appear to be torn from the wall and draped over a table.
