  • PROJECT: Station Platform Balustrade
    • ARTIST: Patrick Marold (Denver, CO)
    • DESCRIPTION: Marold has designed a hand-crafted stainless steel balustrade with a gentle, wandering gesture that defines the outer edges of the station platform. This meandering line gradually moves up and down as if drawn by an unseen hand. The reflection of light and shadows will create a dynamic visual experience that will change depending on the time of day or season of the year.
