Commercial, New York City, 2016

Architect in Charge, Michal Ziso @MEA

Cubic structure retail space made of steel and suspended glass. Located across from the Madison Square Garden, the cube has massive pedestrian exposure maximized by a 80'x40' (24.38x12.19 meters) interactive illuminated wall, hovering diagonally above the street. The cable suspension system of the glass facade was carefully designed to minimize any visual interruption. The steel and glass cube reflects the Empire State Building by being lit up by night according to occasional colors, serving as an informal urban beacon.
