Main Street Pedway

Overview

The glass and steel sculpture suspended from a steel truss will rise above the pedway, constructed of glass walls spanning floor to ceiling.

The sculpture is composed of triangular sheets of dichroic glass that are supported by steel tubes and stainless steel cables. The dichroic glass, which progressively unfolds from the center to the ends, was used because of its unique quality of transmitting and reflecting colors. As light strikes the surface of the glass, one color is transmitted and its complimentary color is reflected. As the glass is viewed while moving, these transmitted and reflected colors change, creating a dynamic experience. The pedway is a representation of the balance of architecture, engineering and art.
