Art & Architecture

Since we completed their interior fit-out in 2012, we’ve jumped at every opportunity to visit the Bronx Community Charter School and see the kids and teachers in action in their new space. Kimberly and Marcella stopped by BxC today and as always, they were blown away.

The 6th grade class recently finished a project studying the human body and site-specific art. They scoped out sites in their school and created sculptures out of clear packing tape. They studied the position of the body, the way limbs fall, and then one person in each 3-person team became the model. The resulting sculptures are hanging out on a bench, the ductwork, and flying under the central skylight.

We love their artwork (which reminds us of this series of floating and glowing human figures by Cédric Le Borgne installed internationally between 2006 and 2011).

Check out the kids’ talent!

Say Cheese, BxC

ESKW/A recently enjoyed the opportunity to team up with architectural photographer Peter Kubilus to capture an exciting – a.k.a. typical – day at Bronx Community Charter School.  The school staff and the kids themselves were incredibly helpful and photogenic, making for a fun and energetic day.

ESKW/A is immensely proud of this project and delighted to see it in action — we invite you to check out Peter’s professional shots on our website, as well as our own snapshots from the day and some more of Peter’s below.
