Flatiron Reflection: Shimmering And Immersive Art Installation In Manhattan By Future Expansion

For the 4th year, Van Alen Institute called for proposals for the annual Flatiron Public Plaza Holiday Design Competition. The project aimed to design and build a highly visible temporary landmark at the heart of the Flatiron District. The winning proposal, Flatiron Reflection, by architect and design firm Future Expansion was on view through the holidays. The project takes the form of a bundle of shimmering tubes, creating a fragmented column at the scale of the public plaza. The fluted perimeter offers niches that can be occupied, while a panoramic central space opens out like a stage into the plaza. The conical interior form cuts out the visual noise of the city to isolate the image of the flatiron building and its neighbors on the skyline.
