Sky Reflector- Net

Did anybody see the New York Times article on the new Fulton Street subway station roof last week?

What an architectural marvel, I hope that I can photograph it one day. The roof is comprised of 952 perforated aluminum panels that are suspended on cables. The panels have a varied amount of stippling, creating a gradient affect.

“It’s almost like you’ve taken the whole sky and folded it in." James Carpenter

The roof is called Sky Reflector-Net. Cost a little more than $2 million dollars.
