Architect Patrick Thorpe will participate in the Gasparilla Distance Classic race in Tampa Bay wearing a scale model of Tampa´s Rivergate Tower.

A digitally printed vinyl fabric will be wrapped around the cylindrical aluminium frame. Although there will be screen for Thorpe to see through, he doesn´t want other racers to see him. He wants them to witness a building running the race.
