The “Gastrotypographicalassemblage”, a 35 foot long, 3D relief of words related to food, ingredients and recipies, which adorned the walls of the CBS Building cafeteria since 1966, was torn down, tossed aside, and almost lost forever in the early 90s. If it weren’t for the efforts of designer Nick Fasciano, and ID magazine writer Eve Kahn, it would have been gone for good.
