Sanford Lab/Homestake in South Dakota is a true wonder: it is both America's largest gold mine, and the underground site of a Nobel-Prize-winning neutrino experiment. Ongoing scientific research there appears in this month's Harper's. C&G Partners has the honor of designing exhibits for a new Visitor Center for Sanford Underground Research Facility, and the centerpiece will be a massive floating model of the entire mine as if the tunnels were solid and the earth removed. This sculptural infographic, conceived by C&G and built by Situ Studio, depicts over 370 miles of tunnels plunging 8,000 feet below ground. Here are a few sneak peek images of the model in progress, starting with the below-ground neutrino research lab level rendered in copper:Read More

One of the major milestones on the annual design calendar has just appeared on newsstands: PRINT Magazine's Regional Design Awards issue. This year two of the firm's projects have been honored: the Against the Odds exhibition at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and a monograph of the firm's recent exhibit and environmental designs at the West Point Foundry Preserve in Cold Spring, New York.
Against the Odds encourages visitors to learn about the experiences of WWII-era Jewish refugees and their rescuers through images, original documents, first-person accounts, and multi-sensory interactive design elements. The exhibition is dominated by “paper walls” that represent the significant bureaucratic barriers and extensive paperwork that stood in the way of this heroic undertaking.Read More

The SITES (Sustainable Sites Initiative) program has recently certified four new projects, including the firm’s West Point Foundry Preserve, located on the Hudson River 50 miles north of New York City. The firm collaborated with Mathews Neilson Landscape Architects and site owner Scenic Hudson on an expansive series of interpretive exhibits that utilized low-impact technologies and abundant materials (such as the former foundry’s used bricks) from the Preserve itself. SITES Director Danielle Pieranunzi called the Preserve an “incredible” project.Read More
