Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.

Pumpkitecture! Architectural Pumpkin Carving Competition

27 October 6:00pm - 8:30pm
Venue: Center for Architecture
536 LaGuardia Place
New York
10012

Start off your Halloween weekend at the Center for Architecture’s second annual Pumpkitecture! competition! 20 New York City-based firms will go gourd to gourd to once again compete for the Pritzkerpumpkin.

Who will squash the competition? Will a firm summon the Brutal ghost of Marcel Booeuer and invoke the spirit of Michael Gravesyard? Will the Crowned Curibita be inspired by Frank-o-Lloyd Wright’s Guggengourd? See for yourself at Pumpkitecture!

Come witness architects live-carve extraordinary structures and vote for the People’s Pumpkin. Pumpkitecture! will take place on Friday, October 27 from 6:00 – 8:30 PM. The carving will commence at 6:15 and will run through 7:30. Contestants will briefly defend their designs, after which jurors will deliberate and pick the winning pumpkin.

Festive food and beverages included.

Price: $10 for AIA members; $15 for non-members
