Project: The Planets at PS163Q
Our Role: Design & Fabrication
Description: After receiving a commission through the NYC School Construction Authority’s Public Art for Public Schools program to create a work of art for a new addition to a high school located in Flushing, Queens, artist Nanna Debois Buhl reached out to New Project for assistance with the fabrication of the sculptural installation. The piece, comprised of a model of our solar system combined with a collection of mnemonic phrases written by students from the school, was realized in steel with a bright red, powder-coated glossy finish.
New Project worked with the artist, her consultant, SCA representatives, 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.
