HYBRID STRUCTURES was conceived by Alois Kronschlaeger (artist), in collaboration with Paul Amenta (artist), and Ted Lott (architect), in partnership with Chris Smit of DisArt. This architectural intervention was a response to the abandoned buildings that line the Northside of Rumsey Street which include:the deconsecrated Catholic church, rectory, school building and convent. A series of ramps traversed, pierced, and connected these structures, providing an accessible and inclusive exploration of the site. New vantage points were created into the abandoned buildings as well as the surrounding site, granting visitors an opportunity to experience Rumsey Street in new and extraordinary ways.
