IN FRONT OF ITSELF, a large-scale, site-specific work fabricated with custom paving stones embedded in the building’s plaza—an area that will serve as a walkable outdoor area
when the movable shell is nested over the fixed part of the building, or as the base of its largest program space when the shell is extended to the east—the 20,000-square-foot work
is titled IN FRONT OF ITSELF and will feature the phrase in 12-foot-high letters.
