C&G conceived a series of installations custom-designed for specific areas in the new space. The ‘Curtain of Names’, welcomes guests to the space. Thousands of translucent rods form a shimmering curtain. Each rod hosts a single member client’s name. A nearby touch directory matches institutions to numbered wires, corresponding to an underlying database. The curtain, touch interface and database are all built for expansion as more members join.
