This was a really unique opportunity to do some work in New York City. The Queens Museum of Art will be reopening in November following a 3-year renovation designed by Grimshaw.

I collaborated with MontesBuild to fabricate a stainless steel guardrail that surrounds a large watershed display. All the short components were fabricated in Portland and shipped. I met the pieces in NY and installed the railing over a long weekend with help from a former employee now living and working in NYC — a nice reunion with dear ol’ Dan. All components are polished stainless drilled and tapped for high tension stainless cables.

The railing and display are at one end of the large central volume of the museum, just behind the pale blue wall seen in these images.

An update.. Some great images of the new museum space in this article by Architectural Record.
