James Carpenter Design Associates Inc.’s artwork consists of a series of uniquely composed vertical glass and metal fin-like elements suspended in front of a reflective metal panel façade. The artwork is 112 metres long and 17 metres tall and features 80 stainless steel fins and over 200 glass fins. The floating fins accentuate the serpentine quality of the façade and capture a sense of the sky within the depth of the façade. As visitors pass by, the Blue Reflection Façade changes dynamically creating a visual layering that is luminous and reflective. Day and night, the shimmering façade provides viewers with a constantly changing experience of light.
