2016 Architizer A+ Awards

Tonight was so amazing. Ryan Swanson and myself (Mark Perrett) were selected for an Architizer A+ Award with our “Marimba Bench” Urban Conga project “Why Sit When You Can Play”.

We flew out to New York City to accept the A+ Award and are so humbled we were able to spend time with some of the most intelligent, creative, and influential people within the architecture community.

I wanted to personally thank all of you who have supported myself and The Urban Conga over the years. You are such an important part to the journey. We are excited to know that what we do matters to people and we will continue this journey to make the world the most fun it can be through design.

Thank you!! ❤️
