about the great wall

This Corridor seeks to
illuminate the north facade of the former Breuner's Furniture Store, on West Grand between Broadway and Valley in Oakland. This �Great Wall� a seven-story windowless tabula rasa stretching the length of a city block� provides one of Oakland's most spectacular urban canvases. The Corridor will take place in three one-hour movements:

Key Route Inn, myrmyr's meditation on the building that flanked 2201 Broadway�s north fa�ade, destroyed by fire in the 1930s

The Great Wall, Shudder's contrapuntal exploration of the current identity of the site, and

Good Times, a new anthem drawn from the momentum of urban redevelopment, composed by Dan Plonsey and realized by string ensemble.
