Today I got some snapshots of a great project I did with Skyline Design at Columbia Prenatal in New York City. Here is how the the process worked:
Perkins + Will (the design firm) approached Skyline Design about using a glass wall for Columbia Prenatal. They wanted to let natural light into the interior of the clinic, but they also wanted to maintain privacty. This is a sketch of what they were thinking about:
Skylilne suggested a translucent wall using my imagery, contacted me for suggestions, and we went back-and-forth with several options. Mockups with JPGs were created and the client chose Flowering Dogwood_9802. Here is my original image showing the crop that was selected. The cropped area was enlarged to 480 x 96-inches.
Perkins + Will decided to use an elegant black & white version of the image printed with Skyline Design’s AST process. Small samples of the full-sized finished glass were sent for approval.
The glass was fabricated in Chicago and trucked to NYC. A glazier in NYC installed the work and the end result is this:
