This week was all about design for Art21 artists. Jeff Koons designed a snowboard to raise money for the Chill Foundation, and Maya Lin’s latest architectural feat in Cambridge was featured in the Boston Globe. Unveiled last year, the building was designed for the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, and features an exterior of interlocking granite blocks and a double-height atrium paneled in grey elm wood.
