Borrowed Window Piece I, 2011


Borrowed Window Piece I is one of two window designs inspired by my stay in Los Angeles in the spring of 2011. The primary point of reference is the architecture of Rudolph Schindler, and specifically, the Lechner House in North Hollywood, California, completed in 1948. The artwork was however developed with the Kunstsæle exhibition space in Berlin in mind, whose windows were redesigned based on window configurations from Schindler’s Lechner House.
