Ned Kahn – Wind Wall at Centene Plaza
This project is called the Wind Veil, and it’s seven stories tall and about 300 feet wide.
Perhaps the most intriguing feature is that enormous piece of artwork on the building that was brought to life by renowned artist Ned Kahn. It’s called Wind Veil, and it’s seven stories tall and about 300 feet wide. “It’s like a moving work of art with 93,000 individual aluminum flags or flappers. They blow in the wind, giving a look of clouds or smoke across the whole wall,” Hardy explains. “It’s part of Centene’s gift to Clayton, to bring this huge art piece here–it’s the biggest piece of art in the Midwest.”
Ned’s wind wall will cover eight floors of parking and will be as wide as a half a city block. We were honored to be given the chance to design the street level signage and window canopies that would serve as the base for Ned’s fantastic wall.
