Manhattan’s new Fulton Center Station…

…due to open next year, is a tremendous construction project intended to improve service / connections involving close to a dozen subway lines, the Fulton, Park Place and World Trade Center stations, and PATH.  While the efficiency will be appreciated by New Yorkers, it’s the station itself which has art and architecture fans around the world watching. Designed by James Carpenter, the station’s signature architectural element is the soaring “Sky Reflector Net” which allows natural light to pour into the station and with its reflective surface literally fill the various corridors and levels with its ambient light.
