Our team of merry elves have sorted, sifted, and seeded the dozens of nominations and the games are ready to begin: Curbed's first-ever Hottest Week is kicking off right this very second. Here's how Round 1 works: over the next 60 minutes, in power-hour fashion, we'll be releasing the identities of the 32 nominees in four groups of eight. Each group of eight consists of four pairs. Each pair consists of two architects, decorators, or interior designers. We'll certainly divulge more details about these folks as the week progresses and as the numbers grow smaller, but let's be visceral for now: Who's hottest? Choose the guy or gal you find most beautiful, rinse, and repeat. Voting begins as soon as the posts publish and continues until 10am EST tomorrow. At that point, the 32 nominees will have been weeded down to 16, they'll be re-seeded, and the whole process begins again. The winner will be unveiled on Friday.
First up: Brad Ford, David Netto, Matt Gryzwinski, Lauren Gold, Joshua Cain, Ben Aranda, Tom Kundig, and Mark Garzon.
