A PAUSE FOR EFFECT
About Our Building Entrance Artwork
The Caesura residential entry façade sculpture is a collaboration between world renown artist German-Egyptian Susan Hefuna, Brooklyn based Situ Fabrication, and Datner Architects. Susan’s design was inspired by the pre- Dutch settlement of Fort Greene by the Carnarsie Native Americans, interweaving “Can Are See“ into the CNC cut aluminum pattern, starlight princess maxwin and linking the ground floor entrance to the building's rooftop gardened with plants of Native American origin. The sculpture filters the light and creates space 'in between', creating a meditative atmosphere for the residents entering the building and encourage them to leave behind daily stress of the outside when entering the inside space, their home.
Situ Fabrication is a custom fabrication shop specializing in architectural woodwork and metalwork, sculptural installations and specialty furniture. The sculpture was made just a few blocks from the project site at Situ’s Brooklyn Navy Yard shop.
