Wouldn’t it be fun to walk through an art gallery every day on your way to work? Now you can! Brookfield Properties has turned the valet parking lobbies on P1 at Wells Fargo Center into a rotating exhibition space. Each installation will showcase the work of a living artist and most works on view will be for sale. Not interested in buying? No problem! Enjoy the art as you come and go, flex your art critic muscles, and savor the slice of culture that Brookfield Properties has brought to you.
FreelandBuck is a Los Angeles and New York City-based architectural office founded and led by Brennan Buck and David Freeland. Established in 2010, the office makes buildings, spaces, and objects that engage the public through layers of meaning, illusion, and visual effect.
The selected pieces include a series of prints featuring a patchwork of abstract images that play with distorted perspectives of a single physical space. These images represent a key component of FreelandBuck’s overarching ideology, which is that a space is defined by both its physical construction as well as the various narratives and perspectives ushered in by those who pass through.
FreelandBuck was a winner of the 2019 Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices Prize. They were named a finalist for the 2018 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program and winner of the 2017 AIA LA Next LA Award for their project, Second House. Other recent projects include Stack House residential project in Los Angeles; MINI Living Urban Cabin in Los Angeles; Parallax Gap, an installation commissioned by the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum; and Hungry Man Productions Los Angeles headquarters.
Underground Art Series is free and open to the public as part of the ongoing effort to bring the public spaces of Brookfield Properties to life through music, film, interactive experiences, and visual art.
