+ POOL Exhibition Opening at Ace Hotel (and a party for you)

Posted by Family and PlayLab (Creator)


We're super stoked to announce an exhibition at Ace Hotel which looks back on four wild years of research and development of + POOL, all through floor to ceiling wall drawings by the team. It'll visualize the process from an idea to a pool, while sharing some of + POOL’s most interesting discoveries and anecdotes to date.

The installation will be open 24 hours, seven days a week at The Gallery at Ace Hotel New York, and will launch with an opening reception hosted by + POOL’s founders (Dong-Ping Wong and Oana Stanescu of Family, and Archie Lee Coates IV and Jeff Franklin of PlayLab), board members (Josh David, co-founder of the High Line; Karen Wong, Deputy Director of New Museum; and Marc Kushner, co-founder of Architizer), and + POOL's Deputy Director, Kara Meyer, on Thursday, February 5th, 2015 from 7-9pm. 

Annnnd if you're really trying to get wild: join us for an after-party in Liberty Hall, located on the lower level of Ace Hotel New York, immediately following the public exhibition opening, 9-11pm, exclusively for ALL OF YOU AND ALL OUR FRIENDS that have been supporting this project from the beginning. 

RSVP required, invite-only, admits two. Cash bar. Our dude Drew Heffron is DJing. Rad. 

Come chill with the team, learn the latest, and help us get closer to swimming in a clean river! 

River or bust,
