Parrish Art Museum

Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York, by Herzog & de Meuron
When Herzog & de Meuron’s original design for the Parrish Art Museum’s new home in Water Mill, New York, was scrapped for financial reasons, the Swiss architects came up with a second, simpler plan. Instead of a cluster of small individual buildings, they created a single, dramatic, 615-foot-long structure with concrete walls and an aluminum roof that draws inspiration from the artists’ studios scattered throughout the East End of Long Island. The architects view the redesigned building, which will triple the museum’s existing gallery space, as a distillation of their original plans. “It’s been a long journey,” Pierre de Meuron says of the Parrish. “But it was important for us to be able to make a second project.”

“Eight architecture students from the University of Colorado have designed and built a cabin in the Utah desert for a Navajo woman. The students planned a long and narrow residence with one room spanning its entire length. To accommodate all of Nakai’s possessions, they tucked all bedroom and bathroom facilities behind a 15-metre long storage and display wall.”

Indonesian artist Eddi Prabandono is probably most known for his giant sculpture made with 25 tons of special clay of his daughter Luz’s head for the 2011 edition of the art exhibition Jog Art, known as the “Luz Series”. However, other works include smaller scale sculptures often made with shovels, bicycles, skateboards, and more recently a multi-looped vespa at Art Stage Singapore.

If you like Prabandono’s cycle sculptures you might also enjoy Patricia Piccinini’s Vespa art, and Sergio Garcia’s trikes.
