Kozo Nishino [ Sky Memory ] @ 4 World Trade Center, NY

Commission art work
2013

[ Sky Memory ], a new work by the sculptor Kozo Nishino, has been installed in the lobby of the new Fumihiko Maki designed 4 World Trade Center in New York City.
[ Sky Memory ] is a large-scale, thirty-meter (90 foot) diameter piece, that glistens with iridescent arcs running along its graceful form. Hovering serenely, Nishino’s sculpture fuses with the highly refined entrance space realized by architect Fumihiko Maki.
