Greetings friends and followers!
We hope you are having an enjoyable holiday season so far. Here’s a quick post to update you on what’s been happening at TYPOLOGY. Since our last post, we’ve reached the final stages of completion for phase one of our new website, and will be ready to launch in the new year. We’re excited to soon be bringing you an official introduction to the project space, information on what’s to come, and guidelines for artists and curators who may be interested in participating. Also we’ll be moving our blog, Typologica, to a new home within the website, from which we’ll continue to post updates, reviews, and news as we prepare for our grand opening later in 2013.
Construction continues over on Shaw Street as well. In a message from Artscape, we were informed that the City building permits were finally obtained over the summer and extensive renovations have commenced, including:
— Interior mechanical electrical and structural demolition
— Infrastructure for the new elevator that will make the building completely barrier-free
— Installation of steel beams to provide structural support for new partition walls
— Demolition and installation of new roof
— Structural work to shore up attic support for new HVAC equipment that will be installed on the roof
— Repair and restoration to the exterior masonry
— Installation of new double-glazed windows which replicate the original windows
So, lots happening behind the scenes!
Thanks for all the interest and support over the past year and best wishes for a wonderful break over the next few weeks. We’ll look forward to catching up with you in 2013!
