There is transparent rods aggregation has polished edges into the cascade partly, it will seem crystaly current. Located in Four Seasons Hotel in Downtown New York City, next to 9/11 memorial.


As location is close to 9/11 memorial, we designed the “Cascade” to lift up the mood of the visitors. It is away to head up to the future.
We believe the souls inhabit around the “Cascade” to face up the bright future. This is the concept of this work.
