Participating Artist – Lynch + Comisso: Architecture + Light (PULP: paper art party 2014)

We are so proud to have professional design firms participate in our party this year!  Here’s a little bit about Lynch + Comisso:  Architecture + Light!

Aurora Cultural Centre

Aurora Cultural Centre

In addition to a variety of new construction projects, many of L+C’s past projects include renovating and updating a wide range of buildings from commercial /industrial spaces, single-family homes and museums. Renovation projects in particular require close examination and analysis of existing conditions and prior history. A key element of our philosophy is the client’s engagement and input throughout the design and construction processes of the project. We are here to listen, lead, advise, present, and act on designs reached through the collaboration of all team members.

The two partners, Steven Comisso and Mary Ellen Lynch, bring a breadth of experience and specialization to each project, allowing our clients to benefit from value-added services that are usually procured through additional consultants. Mary Ellen Lynch OAA, is an associate member of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), and incorporates her architectural lighting knowledge into every design project.  Steven Comisso OAA, has extensive experience as a framer, trim carpenter, and furniture maker.

2014 marks our 10th anniversary. To celebrate the occasion we are creating a collaborative store-front window design made of reclaimed paper material, as our office moves towards ever-increasing sustainable practices. The 5-piece suspension, made up of panels adorned with origami ‘barnacles’, will incorporate texture to form an abstract pattern. We will accentuate the panels with mini-light ‘sparkle’ accents and LED light grazing, generously donated by TPL Lighting. Paper material for the piece has been retrieved from our company’s blue recycling bin.

We have a small staff, made up of like-minded, creative individuals and believe this to be an excellent opportunity to enhance our capacity for problem-solving, team-building and the spirit of collaboration we foster throughout our practice. We appreciate PULP’s mandate of encouraging the building of a ‘city of friends and neighbours’, as we ourselves conduct our business amongst friends and neighbours in a gentrifying and enthusiastic neighbourhood.

Lynch + Comisso has this to say about their submission to PULP: paper art party 2014 – Origami Barnacles Panels.

We would like to create a 5-piece shifting suspension design, made up of panels adorned with origami ‘barnacles’ that will incorporate  texture  to form an abstract pattern that we would accentuate with LED light grazing. The suspension of each panel (approximately 24” x 60” in dimension, at a height of 24” above the ground) in a staggered configuration would allow viewers to wind their way through the piece, experiencing it from various approaches in time and space. Material for the piece would be retrieved from our company’s blue recycling bin, which we would begin to collect upon acceptance into the event.
