Blarney Build 2008 - Chicago City Center
On Thursday March 13th 32 participants from 15 firms converged on the Merchandise Mart to test their mettle in a design-off. Over the course of two hours, design teams mixed, mingled, and got crafty with food and beverage empties in four participating showrooms, all for the chance to win Best of Blarney. After the Build, teams and guest judges took a Build Tour of the showrooms to check out the competition, and winners were chosen. Gettys Group took home Best of Blarney (and some aspirin!) for their inspiring rendition of Navy Pier, and PFB Architects won Best Construction for their “Funcupine.”
Thanks to the Merchandise Mart, our showroom hosts, and event sponsors for an incredible inaugural event, and to our participants for their outstanding creations! We’re already looking forward to another fantastic Build next year.
