Citicorp-45 Degrees

OBJECTIVE: As part of the redesign of the iconic Citicorp building in NYC, our class was asked to design an object from 1977 (the year the building was built) that incorporates the 45 degree angle the building is most famous for. IDEA: Troll Dolls have been a classic toy and collectors' item from the 1970s up through today. I wanted to pay homage to the 45 degree angle of the Citicorp building by styling the troll's most iconic feature, its hair. I designed and shaped a 24 inch wig and attached it to the largest troll I could find. I also wanted to represent the past generations that have stepped foot inside of the historic Citicorp building. The bright silver tone of the troll's body represents the future generations to come.
