FitNation by ABRUZZO BODZIAK Architects
NEW YORK – Led by Emily Abruzzo and Gerald Bodziak, ABRUZZO BODZIAK Architects is a Brooklyn-based design practice involved in projects of various scales. The studio’s services have recently been enlisted to curate and design FitNation, a travelling exhibition which began in June of last year at the Center for Architecture in New York, home of the city’s chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The exhibit has since extended its reach to a broader audience, visiting many other cultural venues across the country.
Carried out in collaboration with Pentagram – a leading international design consultancy – FitNation showcases creative initiatives that address current health concerns and promote physical activity as a means of achieving community well-being.
The exhibition uses hanging coloured strips, placed in such a way so as to create a smooth and vibrant colour gradation. As these blind-like vertical slats separate each displayed project from one another, visitors are drawn across the room, encouraged to walk around in a now dynamic and highly-engaging environment.
