New York-based collaborative design practice Snarkitecture is commemorating the opening of Library Street Collective‘s newly-designed space with an eye-catching brickwork installation on the gallery’s facade.

The new space is located in the belt of downtown Detroit, and will serve for launching dynamic exhibitions from its roster of emerging and established artists.

The brickwork installation acts as textural portal which reveals the white-walled gallery space inside. The intervention also complements the building’s original brick construction.

“We share so much in common with Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham, the founders of Snarkitecture. The art world can often feel insular but both Alex and Daniel understand our intentions around accessibility, inclusivity and community,” Library Street Collective co-founder Anthony Curis expressed.

Check out the installation below. The gallery is currently presenting LIGHT, a collection of new works by Sam Friedman curated by KAWS.
