The space was designed by the Rockwell Group, the architecture and design firm founded by Tony-winning scenic designer David Rockwell.
Real estate firm the Fisher Brothers commemorates the completion of the building’s $20 million improvement plan by showcasing new works from New York City theatremakers and performances artists in the building's interior and exterior lobbies. The pieces are incorporated into the building’s Living Canvas, a 60-foot-long LED art installation, which blends interactive technology, architecture, and storytelling. Details about upcoming commissions will be announced in the coming weeks.
