Step into artist Cai Guo-Qiang’s personal headquarters in downtown New York City. Its recent renovation and expansion sees historic elements from the building juxtaposed against newer materials of translucent resin. A resin-built wall is the central spine of the building and not only distributes natural light to multiple studios but references Cai’s work of unfolding different scenes on a common space. On the cellar level, we see a library, filled with the artist’s collection of publications, and a traditional tea room for reception. The building is a masterful site-specific approach to the cultural backdrop of Cai’s artwork.
