While Defenestration’s flying furniture days are numbered, a canopy of thirteen steel and glass piano sculptures has been commissioned to hang from the façade of 55 9th Street.
Designed by Brian Goggin with Dorka Keehn and entitled “Caruso’s Dream,” the permanent installation will extend up to nine feet over the sidewalk as proposed.
Per Section 136 of San Francisco’s Planning Code, certain categories of building features are permitted to extend over the public right-of-way, but artworks are not. Today, San Francisco’s Planning Department will decide whether to approve the requested variances required for the canopy to be installed on the facade of the building that’s on the way:
