Studio Cadena在纽约特定场地的装置Happy已面向公众开放,这一装置是由Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District (BID)与Van Alen Institute主办的第五届年度Flatiron公共广场设计竞赛的获奖作品。Happy是本年度的核心项目,也是繁华纽约市区一个非常明显的地标。

NEW YORK, NY – Studio Cadena’s site-specific installation Happy, the winner of the fifth annual Flatiron Public Plaza Design Competition hosted by the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District (BID) and Van Alen Institute, has opened to the public. Happy is the centerpiece of the annual program and a highly visible landmark in this thriving New York City neighborhood.

Studio Cadena的创始人兼负责人Benjamin Cadena说:“我们希望每个人在节日里都是幸福的。装置也向所有参观Flatiron的人表达了这种美好的祝福。在我们暗淡的社会和政治环境中,它渴望能够在城市中开辟出一小块更加积极的空间,在寒冷的冬天给人以温暖的拥抱。”

“We all wish each other happiness during the holidays. This installation physically manifests this well wishing to all who visit Flatiron,” says Benjamin Cadena, Founder and Principal of Studio Cadena. “In our otherwise bleak social and political context, it aspires to carve a small and more positive space in the city—it offers a warm embrace during the cold winter months.”

Happy features 23 softly shaped transparent vinyl screens that drape down from an open frame to inscribe an intimate collective space within. Its rich colored surface projects a highly visible and memorable figure from a distance, and up close, filters views inside and out by infusing the surrounding context in a rich saturated glow. Gently swaying in the breeze, it shimmers and reflects while it casts long colored shadows in the low light of late fall and early winter. Happy is a simple device to make you stop, wonder, and most importantly, smile.
