SKE+CHED with Leong Leong

the ray 1525 north american split brick project by leong leong

In this episode, Chris Leong and Dominic Leong, partners at Leong Leong Architects, will discuss their work on The Ray, located at 1525 North American Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This project features an incredibly unique facade featuring Glen-Gery's red velour brick that is split at the core holes to create texture and depth across the city-block-long architectural marvel. 

WHEN UNDER ONE SKY is a public artwork that is in search for unity and commonality. The project attempts to create a series of reparations to the erasures that have happened historically in terms of class, ethnicity, and race, and also to acknowledge these same divisions of difference that are happening nationally and locally with the recent uprisings. The sentiment of protecting neighborhood still pervades despite differences. Learn more
