Our most prestigious project.
Creation of the site-specific art collection for New York University in Abu Dhabi

  • After winning an international selection in 2012, we became the art consultants for the new campus of New York University. A real city of culture that rises in Abu Dhabi, next to the new Louvre.
  • We have been working for three years alongside an academic and governmental commission, dealing with public art theory and ethics. We have thus developed the concept of a collection that includes monumental installations by some of the most important artists in the world: from Antony Gormley to Giuseppe Penone, from Tomás Saraceno to Richard Long.
  • We dealt with design, complex installations, conservative problems. A continuous challenge, cultural and technical. The New York University campus was the open-air laboratory of a unique experience in the world.

After winning an international selection in 2012, we became the art consultants for the new campus of New York University. A real city of culture that rises in Abu Dhabi, next to the new Louvre. From the synergy between Abu Dhabi’s vocation for the future and the prestige of one of the most important American universities a campus arose that will be the cultural hub of the Middle East. A campus that hosts more than 5,000 people: with a majestic library, three theatres and an art gallery. As finalists, in 2012 we were invited to Abu Dhabi to make a Company Presentation. After fierce competition and a demonstration of our technical and business capabilities, faculty and government representatives chose us.

We have been working for three years alongside an academic and governmental commission, dealing with public art theory and ethics. We have thus developed the concept of a collection that includes monumental installations by some of the most important artists in the world: from Antony Gormley to Giuseppe Penone, from Tomás Saraceno to Richard Long. On the New York University campus art is a powerful part of a cultural machine, which aims to train a community of young people from 100 different countries. Not only masterpieces are needed but works of art capable of stimulating reflection, at the same time respecting the strictest criteria of environmental sustainability and safety, resistance to severe climatic factors and ease of maintenance.

We dealt with design, complex installations, conservative problems. A continuous challenge, cultural and technical. The New York University campus was the open-air laboratory of a unique experience in the world. With our experience and our international network, we were the right team to solve the countless problems created by a huge space, a complex architecture and with its very particular needs for use and safety.
Thanks to our network of contacts we have been able to establish dialogues with artists active in all sectors: from monumental outdoor or indoor installations to photography, from land art to interactive art, right up to augmented reality. It is a dialogue that continues.
