Awning Studies: MARVIN GAYE PARK
Washington DC

2012

**Commissioned by Washington Project for the Arts and Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens, NY installed in collaboration with DC Department of Parks and Recreation and DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities**

This ongoing series of interventions foreground the awning as the vernacular architectural ornament of note in the northeastern United States. By removing the primary functionality of the awning-protection from the elements-I advocate for the form’s demonstration of limnality and communal leisure space, specifically in relationship to sites of development and change within the urban context.
