MP Pool Party, Year 3 Preview

The 3rd annual summer pop up at the Manhattan Park Pool Club on Roosevelt Island will launch next weekend, and preparations are underway:

This year, K&Co and Pliskin Architecture commissioned Gregg V Emery, pictured above, to create the 8,000sf mural that anchors the installation and that will act as a backdrop for the summer pool season. We’ve collected a few of the social media mentions of the mural here, creating a year 3 preview of sorts.

Earlier this week, the K&Co and pa|nyc teams joined Gregg on site on a sunny afternoon to help paint, detail, and squeegee the concrete pool deck, which was captured in the above time lapse.

Gregg, above with Krista Ninivaggi of K&Co, follows in the footsteps of HOT TEA and Andrew Faris, who created the 1st and 2nd murals, respectively, in the MP Pool Party series.

With construction underway on our first project in Paris, a pleasant side effect is a growing Parisian Album, assembled of urban moments and snapshots that have been captured throughout our social media feeds.

With construction of the office designed by our NY team with the help of the Parisian crew of Atelier 208 nearing its end, I took a moment and looked through some of the photos that have accumulated on Pliskin Architecture’s Instagram page.

These photos formed a sort of retroactive Parisian Album – moments captured on the streets (and train tracks, and airports) of Paris once onsite meetings wrapped up.
