Sky Reflector-Net, Fulton Center Transit Center, New York City
The stunning Fulton Center Transit Center opened in Lower Manhattan in November 2014, connecting 11 NYC subway lines and the PATH trains that serve New Jersey. A 53-foot-diameter glass oculus sits over a grand multi-level atrium that is filled with pedestrians and retail shops. Suspended within the atrium is a breathtaking piece of artwork called “Sky Reflector-Net,” a steel conical net supporting 952 aluminum panels designed to reflect and distribute natural sunlight into the lowest levels of the building.
Now, forget about the technicalities and simply feast your eyes on this amazing blend of art and architecture!
