PROJECT OF THE MONTH

Colorful Glass Spiral Pays Tribute to Hurricane Maria Victims
https://bit.ly/34mykNf

The recently completed Hurricane Maria Memorial in New York features a colorful glass spiral honoring the victims of the storm, which occurred in 2017. The architect, Segundo Cardona, and artist, Antonio Martorell, are both based in Puerto Rico, one of the most affected islands of the disaster.

The memorial features an ascending glass spiral, meant to echo a hurricane and a shell, which symbolizes protection against the elements. The glass was fabricated by Pulp Studio and features the company’s D2G process for ceramic application and is bent, tempered and laminated. The piece reflects and refracts multi-hued beams of sunlight and is crowned by the star of the Puerto Rican flag, symbolic of hope rising from devastation. The glass panels are painted by Martorell and include the poem “Farewell from Welfare Island,” by Julia de Burgos, a Puerto Rican poet.
