Artist Guy Laramee carves books to create beautiful landscape sculptures. Guy has recently completed a number of new sculptural works where he transforms thick tomes into incredible topographical features including mountains, caves, volcanoes, and even water.
On the night of June 3rd, 2012, Tom Fruin’s newest sculptural artwork, Watertower, was installed on a rooftop near the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO. The colorfully constructed Watertower features approximately a thousand pieces of foraged plexiglass mounted on a steel skeleton. The monumental patchwork of colored glass also includes an interior and exterior ladder and an operable roof hatch. The great amount of plexiglass used for the piece, which measures 25 feet in height and 10 feet in diameter, was collected all throughout New York City.
Opus Hong Kong is a residential property positioned on top of a winding hillside road in the Pearl of the Orient. Comprised of 12 residential units – each occupying an entire floor with unprecedented 360° views – the building was designed specifically for Hong Kong and its unique conditions. The highrise’s helical external structure reduces the need for load-bearing walls, which allows the open-plan apartments to flow around a central core.
