Leonard Hilton McGurr, A.K.A ‘Lenny’, A.K.A ‘Futura’, A.K.A ‘Futura 2000’, is a contemporary American graffiti artist. Over the course of his career, he transitioned from making New Yorkbased subway graffiti in the early 1970s, to exhibiting at Fun Gallery in the 1980s alongside major artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Kenny Scharf. McGurr’s major contribution to graffiti art was his use of abstraction, adopting a style of painting characterized by its blending of text and imagery. Born Leonard McGurr on November 17, 1955 in New York, NY, he went on to collaborate with the punk band The Clash, designing their album art and performing live graffiti during their concerts. Today, McGurr’s work can be found in the collections of the Museo de Arte Moderna di Bologna, the Musée de Vire in France, and the Museum of the City of New York.

FUTURA LABORATORIES, A.K.A FUTURA LABS is a design company and lifestyle brand created by FUTURA 2000 in 1997, as a spinoff group to the parent company at that time; PROJECTDRAGON. FUTURA LABORATORIES has always worked closely with UMBRELLA FILMS for visual amplification and TARANTULA DESIGNS as a graphic think tank. The brand has created many collections over multiple decades and found numerous partners in various collaborative efforts.

The new home of FUTURA LABORATORIES is located in the neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn. Traditionally home to an industrial hub, Red Hook has seen a breadth of change through the decades and centuries. Now home to an emerging industry of artists and creatives, it has kept much of it’s previous aesthetic whilst bringing in new life and ideas to an often ignored place in Brooklyn. FUTURA LABORATORIES at 175 Van Dyke St sits on the edge of the waterfront with panoramic views across the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty.

Based off the project information and required program provided from Futura and his team, WAU then studied 5 initial concept design schemes for the new space. In the concept design phase, the priorites were to establish a clear spatial layout and a unified idea for how the space will operate.

20


CONCEPTS


I WALLS

WALLS sees the studio clearly divided into support space and flexible space. All functions such as storage, shelving, and display are contained in a series of movable walls that can be manipulated to transform how the space is used. 22

II DIVIDE

DIVIDE imagines the studio divided into 2 parts, an ‘open’ side which acts as a flexible space for multi-purpose use, and a ‘closed’ side containing all rooms and utility functions. These 2 sides are separated by a polycarbonate wall spanning the entire length of the studio. 26

III STAGE

STAGE envisions Futura, and the spray room, as the center of the studio. The spray room encompasses the majority of the space and within it, an oasis and platform for Futura to perform while surrounded by support functions. 30

IV FIELD

FIELD divides the studio space into a grid of cable structures from which panels are hung to provide the ultimate flexibility in spatial arrangement. All support functions are reduced and pushed to the perimeter, freeing up the center for flexible use. 34

V ENFILADE

ENFILADE sees the studio as a series of programmaticly planned spaces where an individually designed kit of parts are inserted. It maintains much of the existing layout of the studio while carefully adding functionality through the objects and rooms scattered throughout. 38

Upon completion of Concept design, the team selected ENFILADE as the scheme to develop further. Within the design concept of ENFILADE, individual projects were phased out, with the first phase consisting of the spray room and spray can rack. WAU then focused and developed both these elements using a variety of mediums such as renderings, diagrams, drawings, and physical models to convey design intent.

The material palette proposed for the Spray Room and Spray Can Rack were chosen to represent a juxtaposition between the existing, raw, industrial brick-filled space and the new, sleek, contemporary materials that are polycarbonate, acrylic, aluminum and rubber.

The spray can rack is designed to be a contemporary intervention in the space in the same language as the Spray Booth. A custom built clear acrylic shell holds 150 spray cans and can be replicated throughout the space as the need for more capacity increases.
