Provide signature artwork for the 10,000 square foot lobby of 600 Brickell Avenue. A skyscraper in Miami. The artwork is 19 feet by 12 feet and is the singular artwork in the lobby.
The building's architecture was inspired by the four classical elements: earth, fire, air and water. Our Genesis Series artworks were also based on this same philosophy and the owners recognized this synergy and commissioned us to create something specific for the lobby. Our goal was to 'energize' the space with the artwork...also a goal shared by the owners.
We worked with Perkins Will in the initial stages. They designed the lobby and had suggested a large artwork for the west wall. We then met with the owners of the building and showed them our artwork who then commissioned us to create something new but based on existing series of artworks called The Genesis Series.
The owners were looking for a local team of artists and being in Miami, we qualified for that. The artwork was made on Miami Beach. The owners were concerned with the Feng Shui of the artwork but once they worked out that our artwork represented 'Prosperity' (It's a financial building) they were on board.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
