Hybrid Structures | DisArt | SiTe:LAB
HYBRID STRUCTURES was conceived by Alois Kronschlaeger (artist), in collaboration with Paul Amenta (artist), and Ted Lott (architect), in partnership with Chris Smit of DisArt. This architectural intervention is a response to the abandoned buildings that line the Northside of Rumsey Street which include: the deconsecrated Catholic church, rectory, school building and convent. A series of ramps traverse, pierce, and connect these structures, providing an accessible and inclusive exploration of the site. New vantage points are created into the abandoned buildings as well as onto the surrounding site, granting visitors an opportunity to experience Rumsey Street in new and extraordinary ways. Access becomes Art.
