MP Pool Party, Year 3

Just launched: the video documenting the 3rd year of summer installations dubbed MP Pool Party around a pool on Roosevelt Island. Located as part of the Manhattan Park residential community, the pool has become a key piece of the K&Co and Pliskin Architecture ongoing renovations to the 880-unit rental complex. The 2017 installation features an 8,000sf mural by Gregg V. Emery titled Waves off Roosevelt Island. The video was created by Patrick Mandeville of Divided Line Productions, and captures the transition from last year’s minimalist mural by Andrew Faris to Gregg’s layered interpretation of the over sized canvas, and through to the community’s embrace of the pool, the painting and the furnishing curated by K&Co’s Aaron Levy. The video features the music of Secret Creatures, drone footage by Amy Shell, and additional video footage by Andrea Fuma.

This year’s installation, labeled one of New York City’s most instagrammable summer locations, has been featured in TimeOut New Yorkthe New York PostDNAuntappedcitiescurbed, and PureWow.
