Stephen Glassman Commissioned to Create Monumental Artwork to Complement Bjarke Ingels' new VIA 57 West
Stephen Glassman Studio (SGStudio) today announced a commission from The Durst Organization (TDO) for a monumental outdoor sculpture for Manhattan’s new “superblock” development, 57 West, located at West 57th Street between 11th and 12th Avenues. Flows Two Ways (2016) is TDO’s first site-specific commission, and continues the organization’s enduring support of the arts. Scaling eight stories at sixty-by-sixty feet, the work will denote the main entrance to VIA 57 WEST, the torqued tetrahedral residential and mixed-use “courtscraper” that marks Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)’s first project in the Americas. Installation will begin in March 2016 in anticipation of VIA’s spring opening.
