BizBash shared an awesome article about an architecture firm's event that was completely powered by human involvement. Raw Designs, with production done by Kim Graham & Associates, hosted this celebration of human power on top of a parking garage in Toronto on June 26th. The goal of the event was to remind guests of the power people have in creating the ideas of shaping future environments.
To bring the abstract theme to life, organizers designed an event that was human-powered. You will see that as triathletes furiously pedaled on generator bikes and ran on a human hamster wheel, they created energy that fueled custom light displays and DJ-driven beats. Some 1,400 guests looked on, helping themselves to chocolate drinks created with pedal-power machinery and ice pops that came from human-powered carts. Here's a look at five ideas from this sustainable, human-powered evening.
When guests arrived, they were taken to the sixth floor of the parking structure via rickshaw.
Cocoa grinder Chocosol used pedal-powered machinery to create iced drinks, including Mayan-style drinking chocolate.
Teams of triathletes pedaled bike generators provided by Arizona-based ASE Power. The athletes' motion discharged electricity into the event's power grid.
A local athlete, helped power the event by running in a giant hamster wheel. The hamster wheel helped power up beats from New York-based DJ Alex Merrell.
Sublime Catering served sous-vide beef and salmon cooked on dry ice.
We love this idea of having a human-powered event! It brings a sense of comradery and of course creates that sustainable factor a lot of companies are leaning towards. To get an idea of how to devour the details of a human-powered production, check out Kim Graham & Associates for more information.
