Identity creation for a proposed architectural education arm of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Classical America: Furthering the imagery of Diana, which is currently the Institute's logo, the architecture she once stood upon, at the first Madison Square Garden was added. The Prospectus, Schedule and Budget were bound by a recycled hemp sleeve printed with an original image of the Diana at Madison Square Garden and sealed with a copper wax seal.
Invited by The Metropolitan Museum of Art to create a site-specific installation for The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden, the twin brothers Mike and Doug Starn (born in New Jersey in 1961) present their new work, Big Bambú: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop. The monumental bamboo structure, ultimately measuring 100 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 50 feet high, takes the form of a cresting wave that bridges realms of sculpture, architecture, and performance. Visitors witness the continuing creation and evolving incarnations of Big Bambú as it is constructed throughout the spring, summer, and fall by the artists and a team of rock climbers. Set against Central Park and its urban backdrop, Big Bambú suggests the complexity and energy of an ever-changing living organism. It is the thirteenth-consecutive single-artist installation on the Roof Garden. -From metmuseum.org
The instillation if anything is amazing. Here are a few pictures I snapped before I went back to the French period rooms for the 18th time this year.
