Rethinking Turtle Island: A New Vision for NYC Architecture
The Lenape origin story of Turtle Island is represented by a turtle shell glass dome on New York City’s Tammany Hall. This renovation, developed in consultation with Lenape members, recognizes the misappropriation of the building’s name and establishes authenticity and voice through symbolism. Drawing inspiration from this reconstruction, artists will reimagine the city around us by drawing and painting the changes they wish to see in the urban landscape.
