New York designers Andre L. Michel and Dennis Rolland are the only Americans of the 15 design teams chosen for the 20th anniversary creation of the ICEHOTEL in Sweden. Michel and Rolland's "Gotham on Ice" suite received a huge nod from the Nordic judges. Their winning proposal offered nuances of Manhattan's skyline, Cole Porter's tunes, and a spark of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Each year the ICEHOTEL, located above the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland, becomes a platform for contemporary ephemeral art. Artists from around the globe compete to design and construct ICEHOTEL's Art & Design Suites. In November, Michel and Rolland will board a plane for Sweden to craft their design into a habitable ice suite that will be made using only ice and snow for material. They will have 2.5 weeks to complete the installation. To hear a live interview with Michel and Rolland about the project, tune in to www.7thwavenetwork.com Monday, November 16, at 8 AM Pacific Time/ 11 AM Eastern Time.
