Overview

I created a bright, bold custom wrap that spans two buildings, a wraparound fence, and two underpass areas, as well as matching stickers on 13 complementary columns.

Goals

As an ambitious new multi-building property is underway—at a busy train station stop, no less—the developers sought a way to enliven the area for commuters, pedestrians, and prospective residents.

Process

Formerly an eyesore, the site—a major commuter hub, featuring a highway underpass, two subway lines, and sidewalks and bike lanes—was re-energized with bright, abstract, geometric patterns, emerging as a public art destination.
