Kenny Lao, founder of Rickshaw Dumplings, star of an MTV special, one of Inc Magazine’s 30 under 30, and Crain’s 40 under 40, has a problem: he doesn’t like the bathroom in his apartment. So Architizer, the social networking site for architects decided to help him out, by running a design competition to make over his bathroom. The winning designer would get $5,000 cash and be the guest of honour at a VIP reception in Kenny’s apartment, as well as overseeing the refurbishment.
Seeing the state of Kenny’s bathroom one can’t help but be horrified at what he’s had to put up with… especially if you’ve also read this article about another bathroom in NYC. At least Kenny gets the weight of an architecture design competition behind his cause. So that’s all right then.
