University of North Carolina Charlotte Nexus Project

Project Location: Charlotte, NC

Client: CATS Art in Transit Program

As part of the LYNX Blue Line infrastructure expansion, this new gateway to the University of North Carolina in Charlotte is an important entry plaza to this public transit system.  A series of enveloping stainless steel shadow screens transforms the plaza with an interactive lighting system that engages passengers as they disembark fromt he train..  The undulations of the custom textured and perforated sculpture guide visitors to a central space defined by an inner core of light and shadow.  Interactive lighting elements engage students and viewers, drawing them into the center of the plaza with a dynamic shadow pattern.
