MET Rooftop to WUNDERLUST/WANDERKAMMER at 3A Gallery and more!
Dan Graham (Artist), Günther Vogt (Director, Vogt Landscape Architects), David Seiter (Principal/Design Director, Future Green Studio) Moderator: Miguel Angel Baltierra (Architect)
Dan Graham and Günther Vogt were aware of and admired each other’s work for approximately 10 years. Their first collaboration work was the Novartis Campus Park in Basel, Switzerland in 2005. The MET Rooftop installation in 2014 was their second collaboration. For Vogt, the MET Rooftop was his smallest project. And then, Günther Vogt challenged himself to make a much smaller project at 3A Gallery; WUNDERLUST/WANDERKAMMER (March 4th , 2016 to May 29th, 2016) was equally successful!
David Seiter’s firm, Future Green Studio, installed both the MET Rooftop installation and the WUNDERLUST/WANDERKAMMER at 3A Gallery. Future Green Studio is now installing Vogt’s most recent project in New York at the MET Breuer.
Miguel Angel Baltierra, Architect and host of the AIANY Oculus Podcast series, will moderate a discussion with these creatively important figures regarding their collaborative experiences, love for art, landscape architecture, and friendship.
