Status: Concept Design Program: Gate and Public Space Square Feet: 7,600sf Location: Lower East Side, NY

Clemente Center, a non-profit organization housed in an old Public School, houses artist's studios and performance spaces.

The fence swings, rotates, and folds to provide gate for cars, an entrance canopy for the lot and a public bench.
