Project presentation and reception,
6 Mar 2009, at the Center for Architecture
New York, NY – The Center for Architecture is premiering its Helfand Spotlight Series in the newly renovated storefront Margaret Helfand Gallery. The first project selected for this honor is OMA’s tower at 23 East 22nd Street. OMA’s first large-scale building in New York City, the 22nd Street tower intended to literally turn the tradition of the stepped tower on its head, canting dramatically over its neighbors. The 23E22 exhibition includes an illuminated building model, a site model, 100 process models, details, and a comprehensive project description.
The newly established Helfand Spotlight Series will highlight competitions, projects under construction, and projects recently completed that will have a far-reaching impact on New York City’s built environment. Projects are exhibited as a means of generating public interest as well as presenting in-depth information to the Center’s professional audience. This spotlight will be on view until March 18, 2009.
Organized by the Center for Architecture and sponsored by Slazer Enterprises.
