It's statistically plausible that next week, being the last full week of August, will be the year's hottest in certain parts of the world. To celebrate, we're pleased to announce Curbed's first-ever Hottest Week, in which we pit hot (sexy, gorgeous, beautiful, stunning, spectacular, arresting, captivating, alluring, model-esque, and so on) architects, decorators, and interior designers against each other in a massive, weeklong, sports-like showdown to determine, once and for all, who is the hottest of the hot.
Here's how you can help: While we do consider ourselves excellent, objective judges of outer beauty, the tipline is now open for your submissions: send us your pitches for the hottest architect or interior designer, along with a photo or link to one. Nominations are due by end of day Sunday, at which point we'll assess them and assemble them into an official list. It's fine to make a case for yourself—we're keeping nominators confidential—and entries for both both men and women are welcome to the party. The games begin on Monday—consider it a scorching diversion from our summer programming. How long 'til Labor Day, again?
