Study In Proportions: Row House (back)
2016
Found wood, paper, plaster, c-clamps, zip-ties and assorted small hardware
Created in the James A Farley Post Office (designed by McKim, Mead and White,) the building sits across the street from Penn Station. This installation references a life-size architectural model of the former Penn Station built by Charles McKim, as well as the row houses and buildings that were demolished to make way for the original Penn Station, which was later demolished for the construction of Madison Square Garden.
