In preparation for the official unveiling scheduled for June 7th rapid progress is being made on site in spite of the rain. Installation of the plaza light bollards along 18th street as well as the finishing touches on site grading and landscape was completed today. Programming of the lighting/art installation began this evening and will continue through early next week. The artist niches will get a fresh coat of paint just in time for the ceremony.
If you’ll be in the neighborhood (18th & Locust) on June 7th (“First Friday”) around 6pm please be sure to stop by and enjoy the festivities. Jim Woodfill’s light display in the main art cabinet is a must see. For a sneak peek of tonight’s light programming session check us out on instagram (pendulum_kc)

It’s been a while since we’ve posted progress pictures of one of our favorite local projects located at 1621 Locust in the East Crossroads District. Although the building has been occupied since October of 2012 we’re still working with Egg Design and the Wade Brothers to make things perfect prior to our big reveal in the form of professional photography. If you haven’t attended an event at the Guild yet you should definitely do so. The decor is classic 1920’s with a splash of mod here and there. The vibe is always right with an emphasis on live music, great craft drinks at the bar, and upscale culinary bites by local emerging chefs.
Architect of record: Pendulum Studio

As an update to our last post we’ve installed the full size art wall mock-up on site at the corner of 19th and Cherry (KCP&L Crosstown Sub Station). If you are in town feel free to visit and experience the scale of the project in context. The majority of the block will be wrapped with our steel panel system…approximately 1000 feet. The temporary lighting installation should be on site later this week…we’ll keep you posted.
Just in case you are wondering, the diagonal bracing flanking both sides of the mock-up will NOT exist in the final design, this is a temporary fix for a minor logistical issue…they always seem to pop up at the most inopportune times.
