The Polish artist Monika Sosnowska is planning a public work for New York that riffs on Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s famed Lake Shore Drive Apartments in Chicago. Tower will be a 110 foot sculpture that “quotes the steel framework” of Mies’s Chicago building, according to a press release. Constructed in two parts, Sosnowska’s sculpture has since been cut down into more than 50 pieces to allow for ease of transport and assembly. The work is due to be unveiled on 5 September outside Hauser & Wirth’s 18th Street gallery, and will be up until 25 October.
