COMMON GROUND: Pratt Institute Fashion’s JUNIOR THESIS
Pratt Institute’s fashion department closes the installation with JUNIOR THESIS, a fashion performance based on selected works from year-end collections. Rain date: April 29, 2023
COMMON GROUND by Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong (with lighting design and programming by Xena Petkanas and Christoph Gisel, Arup) is a community pavilion and a site-specific, interactive public artwork on The Plaza at 300 Ashland comprised of a colorful seating landscape and floor motifs that dance across the plaza. Drawing inspiration from the geometry of shrines and sacred spaces and referencing the terraces of the site, this architectural intervention transforms the plaza into an oasis for sitting, socializing, and gathering by day and by night. COMMON GROUND creates a bold, joyous addition to the plaza, and offers a playful topography to embrace the here and now. As a community hub, COMMON GROUND aspires to cultivate togetherness and resilience, while encouraging moments of pause, reflection, and play. Learn more about COMMON GROUND.
