Sculpture in the Environment
Sculpture in the Environment (SITE) is an architecture and environmental design organisation, founded in 1970, and located in the Wall Street area of New York City. The firm works to unite building design with visual art, landscape, and green technology.
In the 1970s, Best Products contracted with James Wines’ Sculpture in the Environment (SITE) architecture firm to design seven highly unorthodox retail facilities, notably a tongue-in-cheek structure in Houston, Texas with a severely distressed facade. This building purportedly “appeared in more books on 20th century architecture than photographs of any other modern structure.”
