‘Constellation’ is a human-scale sculptural pavilion. The site-specific sculptural pavilion is composed of interlocked modules made from a timber structure clad with marine-grade plywood with a digital, UV-resistant print. Constellation provided a new topography for seating, snacking, gathering and socializing and was accompanied by seasonal public programming.
The artwork activated the underused plaza in front of the Seward Park Library as a transformative community public space.
Fabrication involved detailed coordination between the carpentry and the digital printing of the substrate. All of the parties involved worked closely together to make sure the highly precise graphic modules were correctly oriented and constructed.
