2nd Annual Parametric Pumpkin Carving Internationale!


That’s right, it’s the time of year where we in the North East United States gather fallen leaves, harvest our late crops, and poke monstrous looking holes in innocent vegetables. And those of us across the planet who don’t get out much turn instead to our computers and create flexible, reconfigurable, grotesque and glamorous digital facsimiles of vegetables!

Prizes, as always, will be awarded for The Goodest, The Baddest, and The Mostest Parametric.

Submit entries from whatever platform you are comfortable in, Revit, Blender, GC, Rhino, etch-a-sketch, finger paints, etc. Our factory judges are not judgy.

Along with receiving bragging rights, the winners will have their work showcased on these pages to tens of readers and receive a valuable piece of Buildz schwag.

Entries must be received by 12 noon EST Oct 28. Winners will be announced at midnight Halloween night.

So pour yourself a glass of cheer, fire up your software of choice, and make a performance based, LEED certified, direct-to-fabrication, cloud computed, optimized, and/or object-oriented Jack O’Lantern. Post entries to zachkron@gmail.com, at least a screenshot, but feel free to send models, journals, parameters, videos, scripts, whatever, modeled in whatever you like. If you have some huge file, please send a link or let me know and we can work out some kind of upload. If there are less than 5 entries, you suck.  No, not the person next to you, or the other readers, you.




  1. Hmmm...
    Sounds tempting!
    Should I redo last year's attempt using Adaptive components?!?

    I'll try!

  2. Hey Zach,

    I've posted about my entry here:
