UNC Charlotte Lynx Transit Station: The Nexus Project

Project Location: Charlotte, NC

Client: CATS Art in Transit Program

A series of enveloping sculptural stainless steel shadow screens transforms this plaza into a dynamic shadow play environment.  Custom textured and perforated stainless steel mesh undulates and wraps leading students and visitors to a central space that is defined by an inner core of light and shadow.  Interactive elements engage students and viewers drawing them into the center of the plaza with a dynamic shadow pattern.   The sculpture folds and bends to encourage seating and engagement.
