Colorful Cord Installation Warms up Concrete Space

Prism4

Brightening up a flat concrete space is always a challenge. Prism, the work of artist and architect Inés Esnal is a bold contrast to the industrial residential complex in Dumbo, Brooklyn where her colorful cord installation warms up this concrete space, creating a multifaceted geometric installation in the building’s lobby.

Prism is constructed from elastic cords that intersect one another. The views of the geometric shapes are framed off by the alcoves they adorn, haloed by shafts of light that reflect the blue, red and yellow shapes back into the lobby structure.

Eduardo Kobra’s Niemeyer Tribute

Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra is back with his current mural work – a tribute to the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away last december at the age of 104. The new mural is 52 meters tall, 16 meters wide and it covers the entire side of a skyscraper on Paulista Avenue, one of Sao Paulo’s busiest streets. The mural was inspired by Niemeyer’s architecture and among the colorful forms the viewer will find that some of them were based on Niemeyer’s works.
