PROJECT: BRONX LIBRARY INSTALLATION

"DNA of a Young Reader" is a permanent art piece in the Bronx Library created by Inigo Manglano-Ovalle with architectural collaboration from Skidmore, Owings, and Merril. The work consists of 30 solid steel slabs, each weighing upwards of 300 pounds, mounted on two parallel planes of the library walls. Colorful translucent glass discs were embedded in the steel to represent an actual anonymous DNA sample. We worked alongside SOM, and the artist, in constructing the massive work.
