1271 Avenue of the Americas

The streetside water feature is a public amenity for the Time Life building in New York City. The Ken Smith-designed composition is formed of interpenetrating, linear planters, benches, and pools nested with arrays of thick, white-water arches. The sounds of the flows calm midtown traffic noises. The installation is clad in heavy, black stone. The size of the jets transforms slowly. At night, the jets are illuminated in white light.
