Transport Brooklyn, NY 2011 Completed Cultural 11000 sq. ft.
“Transport” was commissioned by the Architectural League of New York for their annual Beaux Arts Ball event. Given the theme of transportation and the site of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, Leong Leong, in collaboration with Jiminie Ha, created a landscape of mutant cargo and shifting hues of color. The existing terminal, designed by architect Cas Gilbert in 1918, was transformed from a monumental industrial space into a series of atmospheric enclaves. Three separate environments created an episodic experience around eating, drinking, and dancing. Milk crates shrink-wrapped into ambiguous shapes were clustered to form areas for gathering and socializing, while a cloud of 400 UV lights illuminated the dance floor.
