Project Neon

février 3, 2011











Architect and designer Kirsten Hively has an enthusiasm for urban space and form that is contagious. Her curiosity about cities is active — she takes notice of a particular structure or sign and seeks out its story. Last summer, Hively told us about the Candela Structures, two almost-forgotten waterfront structures in Flushing Bay that found new life through her investigations and a subsequent exhibition and online project dedicated to surfacing their history. Recently, Hively has discovered a passion for the neon signage of the city and has launched Project Neon, an effort to seek out, photograph and encourage appreciation of the glow of New York City. Read on to learn more about neon’s place in the city, its history and its future and click on any of the images below to launch a slideshow of selections from the over 200 photos (and counting!) she has taken thus far. -V.S.
