The juxtaposition was delicious: an inhabitable sculpture leaping from the concept of affordable mass-produced housing sited atop a hilly slope on the grounds of the most exclusive private club in The Hamptons. Of course, this was no ordinary sculpture and its concept wasn’t inspired by HUD but by Buckminster Fuller on the democratization of architecture through his Geodesic Dome.
Artist Tom Sachs blew out Fuller’s concept by creating the ultimate luxury portable housing dome, making its installation at The Bridge golf club in Bridgehampton, NY the perfect location for the new artwork. Building #3 by Tom Sachs, 2018, was unveiled with an Opening Reception on August 10, 2018 and presented by Vito Schnabel Gallery. The artwork was installed through September 2018 and was included as part of The September Art Fair at The Bridge, coinciding with The Bridge car show.
