Culture Corps is currently in the process of curating the art for the future development of Waterline Square, on Manhattan's west side. The project will incorporate three buildings on the Hudson River, each designed by internationally acclaimed architects (Kohn Pedersen Fox, Richard Meier, Viñoly) and top interior designers (Groves & Co., Champalimaud, Yabu Pushelberg, Rockwell Group). Culture Corps completed curating and placing the art currently in the Waterline Square Sales Gallery and is in the midst of working on the art for the entire development.
The art at Waterline Square is curated to accentuate the dialogue of the site’s unique conditions: a place where architecture, design, landscape and city merge into a heightened setting. The fine art program is built on four pillars: property position; design excellence; water elements; and urban nature.
Placed at the nexus of midtown and uptown, the collection combines emerging and established artists living internationally and locally. Artworks that exemplify a refined modern aesthetic while incorporating conceptual rigor and technical skill reflect the high integrity design throughout the property. Water is a visible subject matter reinforcing the calm fluidity of the property while paying homage to the majestic history of the adjacent Hudson River. The curatorial theme of nature mirrors the variety of organic spaces the site offers, including civic gardens and a grand common.
Art at Waterline Square will signal to visitors and residents that they entered into a rare environment. Ultimately, the integrated worlds of architecture, design and art celebrate the inspired cultural identity of Waterline Square.
