Passage

METROPOLITAN LIBRARY | ATLANTA, GEORGIA

Passage, is located along the upper walls of the library’s central corridor. The forms depict the houses and buildings found along a 3/4 mile section of Metropolitan Parkway where the library is located. The pieces were fabricated to scale (1:58) in the shapes of over 160 neighborhood buildings, and then wrapped with rubber from repurposed bicycle inner-tubes. The configuration of the boxes collectively forms a strip map below which viewers can pass through. The east and west walls correspond to the east and west sides of street which runs parallel to the library’s spine.
