The Muhammad Ali Center is a museum and cultural center located in Louisville, KY. We were asked to create a visual façade for the building using one by two ceramic tiles in nine custom colors. The design of the façade uses photographs by Howard L. Bingham of Ali, with the portrait broken into rough pixelated images. Up close, the portraits become a pattern; at a distance, the tiles resolve into dramatic large-scale portraits of Ali.
