Redirecting The Sky: Fulton Transit Center Oculus
Thursday, Dec 11, 2014
Join Green Light New York and James Carpenter to explore one of the largest and most elaborate art and daylight installations in the U.S.: The Fulton Transit Center's Sky Reflector-Net. Located in lower Manhattan, the Fulton Transit Center will feature an oculus that draws natural light deep into the interior of a multi-line subway station to illuminate its interior shops, restaurants, passageways, and even subway platforms.
Sponsor: Green Light New York
James Carpenter, the lead designer of the Sky Reflector-Net will present the design and construction of this oculus and the impact of daylighting in this public space. Then, he will discuss the challenges and vision of this project with Vincent Chang, from Grimshaw Architects, and Matt Franks, from ARUP.
