Summary “Cosmic Radio Waves were discovered in this building in 1933; in 2007, it was named one of the 10 most endangered historical sites in New Jersey. Today, the Bell Labs buildings has been transformed into a beautiful, innovative commercial space for events, offices, and retail. Under architect Alexander Gorlin’s direction, the two largest Josef Albers patterns in the world have been constructed from tile on the floor, serving as the focal point of the 40,000-square-foot atrium. Using three colorways from ImolaCeramica’s Micron 2.0 collection, these patterns incorporate an interaction of color while paying homage to the square. Mirage Quartziti stone-effect tiles are used to continue the original quartzite of the foyer, working well in color and modern style with the decorative patterns. This project is well suited to foster creativity as an arts and culture space through the integration of art in the design.”
