THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY, MIDTOWN
This National Registered Historic Landmark is considered the greatest Beaux-Arts building in the U.S. Opened in 1911 and spanning two blocks, it’s vast exterior marble structure is truly remarkable. During a major renovation, Opus was commissioned to create plaster reproductions of select decorative relief elements of the building’s cornice for archival usage.
