We Are Happy to Serve You (Spring Street & Broadway)

Client: Kushner Studios
New York City, NY | 1995, reprised 1997

Interactive Temporary Installation. / One of the most recognizable icons of New York City is the ‘It’s A Pleasure To Serve You’ coffee cup. By taking this ubiquitous symbol and reversing its role from background to plan informer, it became the armature against which the architect’s other works were presented. This public exhibition was widely publicized and well received. Adam Kushner wishes to have similar exhibitions in his near future. This was (hand) fabricated in house and involved the hot gluing of some 5,000 coffee cups.
