At 9:04 am, on December 6, 1917, Halifax weathered a devastating explosion.

Princeton posed a difficult problem: Create a “marker” to celebrate President Woodrow Wilson that deals effectively with both his positive and negative qualities. The University’s ambivalence is antithetical to the time-honored tradition of unequivocally revering leaders.

The site is a plaza in front of the Wilson School of Government building, designed by Monoru Yamasaki. A large sculpture in the fountain was existing; Princeton stipulated that the fountain, the sculpture and all existing trees were to remain.

"The Handmaid’s Tale" Highline Installation

Hulu launched its new series adaption of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the dystopian classic by Margaret Atwood. Pentagram designed a new interactive public art installation to celebrates the series by distributing 4,000 free copies of the book. The project was displayed in a high-profile location at the High Line in New York.

The novel is set in Gilead, a future theocracy where women have been stripped of their rights and subjugated into roles as “handmaids” used expressly for procreation.

Denver RTD G-Line Windscreens

Honor Award 2018
Denver RTD G-Line Windscreens

The Windscreens run the full length of the RTD G-Line, a 10-mile stretch from Denver’s Union Station to the City of Wheat Ridge, applied to each of the 17 waiting areas on seven station platforms.

The idea was to develop a unique work of art linking each of the stations together as a cohesive whole. Ditroën developed a concept to create a visual attraction that engages and entertains riders as well as leaving them with a story and a deeper sense of the very place where they find themselves waiting for the next train.
