In transforming Eero Saarinen and Associates’s Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey, into the mixed-use Bell Works, Alexander Gorlin Architects based floor patterns for the central atrium on paintings by Josef Albers. Photography by Michael Moran/Otto.

Research materials for the floor installation included a 1964 image of the carpet in the lobby. Photography: Ezra Stoller/Esto.
