'81 & M.Arch '82) Living Collection in Hong Kong. Gerakaris has also been commissioned to create many public, site-specific installations for Bergdorf Goodman, Cornell Tech, The Surrey Hotel, & the Warwick Hotel Bahamas. He recently completed a 116ft permanent public commission at PS101 (Bklyn) awarded by the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs Percent for Art Program.
