Young Artists Create Designs for Smorg Square

If you are visiting CMA on Fridays or weekends, there’s a fantastic new lunch option for you and your family: Smorg Square! Located at 76 Varick St and Canal Street, Smorg Square has a lineup of more than 20 vendors. The coolest part? The space is decorated with designs by students at CMA!

Using Rhino and Grasshopper software in CMA’s Media Lab, the young artists designed a supergraphic of ribbons. They learned how to interpret these plans to create the pattern they wove into the exterior fence of Smorg Square. Working with architecture and strategy firm A+I and the studio Plus Farm, the students learned how to work collaboratively as a team on a branding design that will remain permanently on view.
