Last week on Dezeen.com the work of Buro Koray Duman was featured, and photos of Catskills barns and artist galleries were showcased in beautiful form. The firm has been hired as a development coordinator for the 250-acre compound in the Valley, which will include a accommodations for an artist-in-residence, studios, galleries, and a library. The planned expansion comes on the heels of the completion of the exhibition and storage space in 2015.
The gorgeous designs are inspired by the vintage barns already on the property, and Buro has created a contemporary and minimalist vibe to the new buildings. The use of the property has impacted the passive structures and the light, permeable roads that interconnect all the structures. While Dezeen.com fails to mention the name of the artist, we would strongly suspect that Richard Prince is the photographer behind the construction of the compound.
Buro Koray Duman is an architectural firm in New York City strongly rooted in modernism and forward thinking ideation as an approach to design problems. The firm is led by Koray Duman, an architect who graduated from UCLA’s Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design with a masters degree in Architecture.
