James Carpenter Design Associates’ “Parallel Light Fields”, can be seen on KTVU. Parallel Light Fields consists of an overhead field of prismatic light fins interacting with translucent pavers and a series of illuminated benches set into a ground plane of concrete pavers. This luminous environment creates a unique spatial and perceptual experience for pedestrians in Shaw Alley.
The sculptural elements interact with the constantly changing characteristics of ambient light and create a heightened awareness of both the built and natural environments. This integrated sculpture creates a landscape of light linking the Transit Center to the City.
