The Upper Room is a collonaded court marking the entrance to the Esplanade at Albany Street. This self-contained sculptural environment suggests a contemporary re-imagining of an ancient Egyptian temple. Inside, it features a long table adorned with chess boards, twelve stools, and an altar-like pergola sheltering an iconic palm tree.
Rector Gate is a festive archway marking the intersection of Rector Place and the Hudson River Esplanade. Rising 50 feet high, the gate is inspired by Russian Constructivism and Science Fiction. This artwork brings the romantic grandiosity of New York's early skyscrapers and engineering feats to a human scale.

This ensemble of a shrunken street lamp, circular elements, and a throne-like seat is made of granite and a pair of slatted wood deck chairs. This piece is an eccentric public recreation deck that marks a witty reflection of their urban environment.
