Newark 1988

Newark 1988 , originally uploaded by Kinorama.

A rare image of Mr. Clyde Randall caught in action taking some measurements of the Newark Urban Instalation exhibit.

Back in 1988 The American National Standard and FBC teamed up and sent an advance team of Mr. Randall and Mr. Porter who constructed a life size scale replica of an entire city block of Newark New Jersey out in the Utah Desert.

It took the team 3 years to complete the project, but here she is. The hardest part was finding the chromatic matches of the faded 19601~1976 color pallets used in the recreation.
