Can scaffolding be beautiful? Anderson Moran has undertaken a photo series for the architecture and design firm, William Green Architecture, that shines a light on the ever-changing scaffolding in New York City.
On the firm’s blog BiLLY BoY, it reads: ‘We immediately accept these temporary, spiny structures into our daily commutes, taking refuge from the rain or respite from the beating sun. Suddenly, they vanish, revealing a satisfying and sudden makeover from the last time we’ve had an unobstructed view. But in that interim, scaffolding impresses in its own right, wrapping up every geometric shape, be it spire or sphere, into its tight grid with the fine regularity of a honeycomb’.
By the way, New York City has 189 miles of scaffolding, so love it or hate it, you should get used to it – it’s here to stay.
