metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
Snøhetta has renovated a Brooklyn warehouse to create a studio for Cuban-American artist José Parlá, whose murals adorn the lobbies of One World Trade Center and the Barclays Center.

In summer of 2014, José Parlá, the Cuban-American artist and painter, worked with Snøhetta to convert a warehouse in Gowanus, Brooklyn into his new working studio.

The design of Jose’s studio is one in a series of collaborations with...
