A NYU Langone medical building in Manhattan has a wave of Caribbean flair, thanks to a collaboration between New York-based Laurence G. Jones Architects (LGJA) and Jamaican artist Kianne Patrice Hutchinson.
Duggal Visual Solutions’ H. Joseph Smith introduced LGJA to Hutchinson—both of whom had come to Duggal separately for previous projects—after identifying the potential fit between architectural vision and artistic style. The two took off running, with Smith as the production consultant for a lobby refresh at 145 East 32nd Street, owned by Meyer Equities.
Hutchinson’s digital artwork comes to life in the lobby on Vibrachrome® metal prints including a five-panel, 20-foot-long piece, with gallery-float framing. The aluminum gives the imagery extra vibrancy and durability, while the Plexi mounts add dimension and contemporary appeal. Interwoven wall and ceiling graphics make the display experiential and immersive. We’re thrilled that the match panned out for all parties!
