Project: The Planets at PS163Q
Our Role: Design & Fabrication
Artist Nanna Debois Buhl received a commission through the Public Art for Public Schools program to create a work of art for a new addition to a high school in Flushing, Queens. She reached out to New Project for assistance with the fabrication of the sculptural installation: a model of our solar system combined with a collection of mnemonic phrases written by students from the school Both components were to be made out of steel with a bright, red, glossy, powder coated finish.
New Project worked with the artist, her consultant, the NYC School Construction Authority, engineers, and the general contractors as the school addition was being built to design, engineer, and fabricate the public artwork as the artist had envisioned.
