We're super excited to be co-hosting the next DELVE: Architecture + Art event on Tuesday, December 9th from 7-9pm in Brooklyn with the great people at the Color Machine! Get tickets here before they sell out!
We met Jordan at one of our past events, but it turns out we both had the chance to work on the project, Rebuild By Design (RBD), in different capacities. We've included the short doc they made about RBD below so you can get a sense of the work they do. Rebuild By Design is an architecture competition created in response to Hurricane Sandy. Ten teams were chosen to create proposals that respond to rising sea levels in vulnerable areas in the Sandy region. RBD was spurred by the President’s Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force and developed in concert with private philanthropic organizations such as The Rockefeller Foundation, MAS, and Van Alen Institute.
About the Color Machine
When you have an idea to explain, or a feeling to express, a story to tell, a topic to explore, if there’s a product to launch or a brand to connect with people, The Color Machine uses film, video and design and a few very talented people to make that happen.
The Color Machine is full service creative and film production company, founded by Liz Regan, Jordan Alport and Raafi Rivero in Brooklyn, New York.
One of them occasionally designs clothes, or writes films, or has writing featured in the New York Times and the Huffington Post, one of them sees a record amount of live music and has travelled more on the local streets of American Music than anyone we know, one of them used Somerset, England to film a scene set in the Serengeti.
Collectively, their client list includes companies and organizations like Bugaboo, Coca-Cola, Diesel, Proctor & Gamble, HowAboutWe, NARS, McDonald’s, Discovery, HBO, Christian Dior, TED, Quicksilver, Skype, and the city of New York.
Recently they've taken an interest in short films examining urban issues for the Rockefeller Foundation, The Municipal Art Society and NYRP. Last spring, The Color Machine created The Rebuilders for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Van Alen Institute, a suite of films about unique efforts to rebuild the New York Region after Hurricane Sandy.
Be sure to join us on December 9th to meet this creative team and hear more about what they do and see where they work!
