Sky Reflector of the Fulton Center

New York City, NY, USA, 2013

Situated in the heart of Lower Manhattan, the Fulton Street Transit Center is designed to revitalize the area and will become a jewel of New York City transit system. Handling an average of 300,000 passengers per day and linking eight subway lines, the station complex is one of New York City’s busiest underground transit interchanges.
A hyperbolic-like cable net stretches within the conical atrium design. The cable net supports an inner skin of diamond shaped perforated aluminium reflector panels, optimised to capture and distribute year round daylight to the deepest levels of the transit centre.
