The Food and Drink


Lovett Deconstruction is proud to have hosted the first annual Dropbox Derby, a one-day design/build competition using salvaged materials. 

This friendly, festive event featured great food, local cider, and live music. It is a free event that is open to the public and all proceeds went to Sisters of the Road

The event hosted fourteen teams of 2-4 members each. Each team received identical batches of salvaged (mostly wood) material and a theme of "Bridgehouse". Teams had 4 hours to design and build a piece. A panel of 3 judges selected the top three designs for which prizes will be awarded.

While sipping cider and rubbing elbows with builders and makers, attendees were able to bid in a silent auction on pieces as they were being made. 

This is an annual event so put it on your calendar for September 2018! 

The Dropbox Derby is proud to be a participant in PDX Rust: Portland ReUse for Societal Transformation: A Week of Neighborhood ReUse Events. Further information on these events can be found here
