Poster for the INTalks event

The partnership between Barry Diller and the Hudson River Park Trust, Little Island was born from the unique opportunity to envision a solution for the repair and renovation of Pier 54, and re-imagining an entirely new type of public space for New York City, one that would create an immersive experience with nature and art.

The presentation will discuss the process and challenges of designing lighting for Little Island on Hudson River.
