I recently designed five windows at 60 Hudson, the former Western Union Headquarters, with the Marketing Thru Graphics team. The windows can’t be used commercially because there are sizeable backup power generators to safeguard the US internet in the building. The building is trying to engage people with its astonishingly beautiful architecture and rich history. I.e., Thomas Edison invented the stock ticker here, and the first telegraph lines across the US and the world were all linked to this building.
It has since lost a little of its former glory, but we are trying to bring it back with the window installations.
