Made from 3inch rigid insulation and mirrored acrylic this temporary and site-specific installation was part of a series that ‘explore the translation of a legible figure into a continuous visual field’. More photographs and drawings about the Turning Pink installation following the break.

Architects: Leong Leong Architecture Location: New York City, New York, USA Principals-in-Charge: Dominic Leong and Chris Leong Project Team: Nathan Smith, Christina Galvez, Sarah Carpenter, Greg Bugel, Brittany Drapac, Naomi Szto Builder: Leong Leong Architects Sponsors: 3.1 Phillip Lim and Pabst Blue Ribbon Project Area: 60 sqf Project Year: 2010 Photographs: Courtesy of Leong Leong Architecture

The installation appears as a glowing, mysterious sliver of color from the street. The cave-like space is a result of blending four shapes into a topological environment. The walls of the gallery are lined with mirror to transform the spatial figure into a field of reflections. All material used in the installation will be recycled in the construction of an artist residence in New Jersey designed by Leong Leong.
