A Sky Cave for New York City by Vernon Roether
Columbia GSAPP student Vernon Roether looked at unused subway spaces in New York City as potential moments of meditation. A descent into a secret landscape of both active and forgotten infrastructure exposes visitors to the organs of a living, breathing city. Motion is abstracted and revealed at key moments punctuated by intrusions of light, sound, and touch.
