Cardboard Pop Up Chapel in Central Park

Cardboard Pop Up Chapel in Central Park

Z-A Studio, run by Guy Zucker, was one of the selected winners in the Architizer + The Knot’s Pop Up Chapel Competition, celebrating the historic legislation legalizing same-sex marriage in New York. Their piece entitled “Kiss” is a tulip-esque volume, consisting of multiple layers of stacked recycled honeycomb cardboard. It was on display at the Merchant’s Gate in Central Park July 30th between 10am to dusk where 24 couples celebrated marriage equality.

“The ensemble is supported by a plywood base, while all materials will be affixed using common wood glue. The architects suggest that the union of the two delicate forms creates a “stable entity, that is more than the sum of its parts”–an apt description of marriage, we think. When abstracted the same sentiment speaks to the nature of architectonics and space, which, perhaps, is only made present by the joining of constituencies.” — Architizer
