Steven Holl, Vito Acconci
 
location New York, New York
function gallery
contributed by booce

Storefront for Art and Architecture is a non-profit organization committed to the advancement of innovative positions in architecture, art and design. Steven Holl and artist Vito Acconci were commissioned as a collaborative team to renovate the Storefront's aging fašade. The gallery itself is a limited, narrow wedge with a triangulated exhibition interior, such that the most dominant structure for the Storefront is the building's long fašade. Seeking to introduce improbability and to puncture the fašade, Acconci and Holl challenged this symbolic border which underlines the exclusivity of the art world, where only those on the inside belong. Using a hybrid material comprised of concrete mixed with recycled fibers, Holl and Acconci inserted a series of hinged panels arranged in a puzzle-like configuration. When the panels are locked in their open position, the fašade dissolves and the interior space of the gallery expands out on to the sidewalk (text from website Steven Holl Architects).
