Pattern recognition | White wash.


A recent work trip granted me four glorious days in New York, my first time visiting the city in - gasp - ten years! I spent the majority of my time at MoMA PS1, and when I wasn't deep into work I was either daydreaming about the rich history of the building or drooling over the peeling patina inside.

borough * The First Ward Primary School - later PS1 - was Long Island City's first school and the largest in all of Long Island when it was constructed in 1892-3.

My mind raced as I took in the original flooring, lighting, sinks... so many of the studious stylings had been retained. I'm so happy I got to go there when I did, because the last day of my visit the third floor, the last floor with colours instead of white walls, was getting white washed! Can you believe it...?

That floor whitewashing is criminal! Lovely photos Jess, thanks for sharing them. Hope all's well with you.
