Sky Reflector-Net

Solar Reflector Shell


James Carpenter won a competition with his design for the Fulton Street Center. Collaborating with architects, Grimshaw & Partners, New York, the plan for the MTA Downtown Transit Center links the Fulton Subway Station to the new World Trade Center Path Station by a cross-town underground pedestrian tunnel. However, the Fulton Street Transit Center brought light into the otherwise dark transit system; daylight now can be seen through the glass domed ceiling.Also, called the Sky Reflector-Net. This is the first intentional skylight in the New York City Subway system since the 1945 closure of the original City Hall station.
